Adam Burns from the Youngstown Yacht Club, sailing USA378 Presto with co-owner and wife Lori Burns and crew James Barnash, John Goller and Jason Suitor, won the 2010 Melges 24 North American Championship, held recently in the Lake Ontario waters off of Rochester. He reports a perfect fall day, clear blue skies, warm sunshine, light winds and three more great races were the perfect recipe for a standout finale to the 14-race series. With the win, Burns, who has sailed from Rochester regularly since high school, also claims the 2010 Melges 24 North American Corinthian Championship title, making him the first sailor ever to win both Corinthian and overall trophies at an International Melges 24 continental championship.
