Darden wins J/105 Midwinter Champs

Published on March 10th, 2019

The 2019 J/105 Midwinter Championship attracted 11 teams on March 8-10 in Fort Worth, TX. Locals Glenn Darden and Reese Hillard led the Hoss team to victory, winning three of the eight races and never finished lower than sixth. Following Hoss in second place was Bill Zartler’s Deja Voodoo and Kenneth Horne’s Final Final in third.

“It was a wild three days of tight racing with winds ranging from 3 to 30 knots,” said Darden. “Eagle Mountain Lake always makes it interesting” Darden’s team was comprised of co-owner Reese Hillard trimmer, Jake Scott tactics and mainsheet, Tony Waldon on bow, Peter Philpott at the mast and Lindsay Scott doing everything else.
