2012 North American Championships, Beaufort, South Carolina
At the JY15 North American Championships, the class's top sailors take turns beating each other up on the water.

He won two of the regatta's eight races hosted by Beaufort Yacht and Sailing Club to finish with 21 points and win the event for a third time, edging New Yorker Paul-John Patin, with 25 points.

Wind picked up to an estimated 8 to 10 knots by late morning, allowing time for only one race in the Beaufort River before the noon cutoff.
