A face off between the team representing Pequot Yacht Club led by PERRY and the team led by defending champion ANGEL representing King Harbor Yacht Club went to the max, as the best out of five series went to 2-2. In the deciding race, PERRY and his crew Terry FLYNN and Chris MUSELER came out ahead of ANGEL and his crew Michael DELANTY and Payson INFELISE to take home the title. This marked PERRY's second title, after previously winning it in 1982 (when he represented Yale Corinthian Yacht Club).

The petit-final, the battle for third place, turned out to be just as exciting as the competitors went to the best out of three limit. The Bayview Yacht Club team led by Nathan HOLLERBACH (USA), who won the championship just three years ago, edged out over Benz FAGET's (USA) team representing Southern Yacht Club. HOLLERBACH had set the stage on Friday starting off the petit-final with a win in the first race, but FAGET came out prepared on Saturday morning to tie the series 1-1. In the final race, HOLLERBACH came roaring back to win the race and take third place.

The U.S. Match Racing Championship is part of US SAILING's National Adult Championships, all of which are sponsored by Rolex Watch U.S.A. For more information about US SAILING's National Championships, visit -
