New leader at J/70 Midwinter Champs

Published on February 5th, 2022

Tampa, FL (February 5, 2022) – The temperature dropped at the 2022 J/70 Midwinter Championship but the winds stayed solid in the low-teens, allowing another three races today. One more is planned for tomorrow to complete the eight-race Championship.

Fernando Perez Ontiveros’ Black Mamba with Gonçalo Almeida, Bernardo Freitas, and River Paquin posted a 1,4,9 on the day to leapfrog into first place with 26 net points (discarding a 12). Day one leader David Jannetti’s Very Odd slipped to second place on the heels of 4,12,21 today, giving them 31 net points. Brian Keane’s Savasana won the day with a 3,6,3, and his 36 net points moved him into the bronze position.

In the 28-boat Corinthian Division, Francisco Van Avermaete’s Juicy maintained the lead among the amateur teams, and USA1516, led by Dave Kerr and Lee Sackett, stayed atop the seven-boat One-Pro group.

Today’s race winners were Ontiveros’ Black Mamba, Kerr & Sackett’s USA1516, and John & Molly Baxter’s Team Vineyard Vines.

Racing is being held February 4-6.
