Fifty-nine J/70 teams qualified to win the 2017-2018 Quantum J/70 Winter Series at Davis Island Yacht Club in Tampa, Florida by competing in at least two of the three weekends with the same boat and skipper.

Brian Keane's Savasana placed third overall on the final weekend to earn the Series victory. Following Keane are Bennet Greenwald's Perseverance and Bruno Pasquinelli's Stampede. The Corinthian division was won by Sarah Renz's Berteau Group.

Following two breezy weekends accompanying cold fronts, conditions this Saturday and Sunday were characterized by sunshine, record high temperatures and light winds on Tampa Bay. Four races were completed, and Jack Franco's Flojito 3JT won the final segment of the Series.

The popular Quantum J/70 Winter Series spans three weekends of racing between early December and February, allowing participants to store their boats onsite for a reasonable fee. Additionally, on each Friday of the Series, SAIL22 and North U combined forces for the Porch Series to offer practice races and coaching.
