Published on February 27th, 2022

Paul Foerster’s Grand Slam 2, with crew Mike Brown, Rob Johnston, Ryan Minth and John Skiles, won the 2022 J/24 Midwinter Championship in Tampa, FL. Held February 25-27, Foerster’s team ended day one tied with Tony Parker’s Bangor Packet after three races, took the lead on day two after the lone race, with no racing on the final day due to a lack of breeze.

Foerster came from Rush Creek Yacht Club in Texas, and nailed scores only in the top two for 7 points. Led by the National Sailing Hall of Famer, the team will compete in the 2022 J/24 World Championship in Corpus Christi, TX. James Freedman’s LOL prevailed among the impressive 17-boat Corinthian division, and they also placed fourth overall.
