1+1+1=1?

One Design that is. The third J/105 to enter is Escape Artist. Their entry brings the J/105 count to 3, meaning they will have their own fleet. No complaining about ratings in this group! OK, at least until they start comparing themselves against the overall fleet.

Escape Artist reports they are probably the "youngest" of the competitive J/105 teams from Portland, OR, which is no doubt helped this year by the 16 year-old son of another J/105 owner crewing with them.  Don’t be fooled though as there are several Oregon Offshore and Swiftsure veterans on the team this year with Dana Sibilla as skipper. Dana says they are proud to be a part of the J/105 Pacific NW OD Fleet 20 and compete almost weekly year-round.
