2018-19 J/70 Winter Series at Davis Island Yacht Club - Weekend 1

by Julie or Christopher Howell 10 Dec 2018 06:08 GMT 8-9 December 2018

Forty-seven J/70 teams traveled to Davis Island Yacht Club in Tampa, Florida for the first weekend of the 2018-2019 J/70 Winter Series. Conditions on Saturday were sunny and warm with winds at 6-8 knots, allowing three races.

The passage of a cold front on Sunday brought rain and storms through Tampa Bay, keeping teams ashore. Igor Rytov's Russian Bogatyrs earned the overall victory with scores of 7,2,4 for 13 points. Greiner Hobbs' Dark Horse placed second with 16 points, and Doug Strebel's Black River Racing followed in third with 18 points. The 14-boat Corinthian division was topped by Bob Willis' Rip Rullah, who notched a bullet in race 2.

Each Friday of the Series, SAIL22 leads the Porch Series including a North Sails debrief. This weekend featured several races in which 33 boats were able to learn from on-water coaches, before heading in for a North Sails forum at the DIYC clubhouse.

Racing continues at Davis Island Yacht Club on January 4-6 and February 8-10.
