J/24 North American Champion: Travis Odenbach’s Honeybadger

October 31, 2022

Travis Odenbach’s Honeybadger, with team Jay Miles, Chris Morgan, Monica Morgan and Terry Shannon, are the 2022 J/24 North American Champions. Seven races were completed in the series, although none on Sunday due to lack of breeze, at Severn Sailing Association in Annapolis, Maryland. Odenbach tallied 18 points, one better than Mike Marshall’s American Garage who took the silver. Kohei Ichikawa’s Gekko Diana of Japan claimed the bronze position with 27 points. Evan Petley-Jones’ Lifted (crew Evan Burns, Spenser Dalzell, Ben Maloney and Matt Soosalu) topped the 17-boat Corinthian Division, followed by Finn Hadlock’s Boreas and Al Constants’ Blitz. Odenbach summarized, “Annapolis had great breeze this weekend. I think the team did a phenomenal job. Jay was unbelievable in keeping me calm. Having the team together as good friends was the reason for success.”
