Fifty-five J/70 teams traveled to Davis Island Yacht Club in Tampa, Florida for the middle weekend of the 2018-2019 J/70 Winter Series. Joel Ronning's Catapult took the victory with 24 points in five races.

Ronning fell ill on Saturday morning, so Wendy Reuss stepped in to helm the team to scores of 5,2,3,1 in gorgeous conditions (winds around 15 knots with higher gusts, under a cloudless sky). Catapult was two notches behind Travis Odenbach's B Squared after day one.

Light winds around 6 knots allowed only one race on Sunday, with Ronning feeling better and returning as Catapult skipper. They finished 13th, but Odenbach landed 20th, giving the Catapult team the weekend victory (Odenbach totaled 29 overall points). Brian Keane's Savasana placed third with 33 points. The 18-boat Corinthian division was topped by Andrew Fischer's Button Fly.

Each Friday of the Series, SAIL22 leads the Porch Series, which included a Racegeek Clinic. The weekend also featured practice races in which teams were able to learn from on-water coaches in moderate breeze as a cold front was passing through the Tampa Bay area.

Racing concludes at Davis Island Yacht Club on February 8-10.
