2019 San Diego Yacht Club Hot Rum Series

2019 Hot Rum Series © San Diego Yacht Club

Sadly, the third and final race of the 2019 San Diego Yacht Club Hot Rum Series could not be sailed due to a substantial lack of wind... the expected sea breeze that often develops from the WNW never fully materialized to launch the fleet of 125+ boats across the starting line with any hope of getting them all back in by sunset. As a result, the series standings from the previous two races stood as this year's overall results.

In the huge twenty-eight boat PHRF 1 Class of "gold platers", three J/crews all finished next to one another. Standing Fleming's J/125 Timeshaver took 5th place, while Rudy Hasl's J/145 Palaemon took sixth position and Robert Pace's J/145 Andiamo 2 took seventh.

The twenty-one boat PHRF 2 Class saw John Laun's J/120 Caper win their last race to leap into fourth place for the series.

The usual suspects in the large twenty-eight boat PHRF 4 Class saw J/105s predominate. Leading the class was Dennis Case's J/105 J-OK, followed by Tom Garrett's youth team on the J/70 Sloop John B in second place, followed by Jeff Brown's J/105 Sweet Karen in 5th place, Steve & Lucy Howell's J/105 Blink in 7th, Chuck Bowers's J/29 Rhumb Runner in 8th, and George Scheel's J/105 Sun Puffin rounding out the top ten.

The thirty-one boat PHRF 5 Class saw Tim Lynch's J/30 Ruffian sail consistently to take fourth place. More San Diego YC Hot Rum Series sailing information here.
