Wild and Wintery at J/70 Winter Series

Published on January 8th, 2017

Forty-eight J/70 teams competed in the second event of the 2016-2017 Quantum J/70 Winter Series, with racing on January 7-8 in Tampa, FL. Conditions ranged from wet and wild on day one (winds up to 28 knots) to sunny and cool on day two (winds 10-18 knots).

In the six race series, Bruno Pasquinelli’s Stampede racked up four consecutive bullets and a second to allow them to sit out the final race. Thom Bowen’s Reach Around, who won the first weekend of the Series in December, took second place with 13 points. Allan Terhune’s Dazzler edged out Darby Smith’s Africa for third place (Terhune with 16 points to Smith’s 17).

The 24-boat Corinthian division was topped by Andrew Fisher’s Button Fly.
