J/70 Great Lakes Championship Regatta 2013 Tim Wilkes
J/70 Great Lakes Championship Regatta 2013 is being held on August 10th and 11th. The Buffalo Yacht Club is honored to announce that we have been selected to host the inaugural J/70 Great Lakes Championship Regatta. Past Rolex Yachtsman of the Year Jud Smith will be hosting a clinic on 9 August.

Having recently run the extremely successful and competitive 2010 J/22 NA’s, 2011 LYRA as well as the annual J/22 'Raw Bar' Regatta, the BYC has demonstrated that it's a great place to sail and the fun continues once everyone is off the water. With 39 boats at Key West this year and 54 currently registered for Charleston Race Week – there is little doubt that the J/70 has quickly become a premier one design machine offering exciting sailing and strong camaraderie in an affordable package! The racing in the Buffalo Harbor offers consistent breeze and wave patterns perfectly suited for mind-blowing downwind surfing!

We are proud to welcome back Towne BMW and Mini as our title sponsor. The TOWNE Automotive Group has been a fantastic supporter of competitive sailing for 20+ years. Other sponsors are Doyle Sails, Mount Gay Rum, RCR Yachts and the Great Lakes Brewing. We look forward to seeing old friends and making new ones this J/70 Great Lakes Championship Regatta 2013
