2019/2020 DIYC J/70 Winter Series 2 at Davis Island Yacht Club - Overall

by Julie & Christopher Howell 12 Jan 19:46 PST 11-12 January 2020

Fifty-three J/70 teams savored spectacular conditions on Tampa Bay for the middle part of the 2019-2020 J/70 Winter Series at Davis Island Yacht Club in Tampa, Florida. Jack Franco's 3 Ball JT, with crew Bill Hardesty, Alec Anderson and Rob Lindley, ruled the six races, posting five bullets and an eighth for just 5 net points.

Brian Keane's Savasana placed second on the weekend with 26 points, but leads the overall ranking (with the final of the Series to come). Darby Smith's Africa took a second in Sunday's final contest, moving her into third for the weekend with 28 points. Bob Willis' Rip Rullah, with team of Matt Clark, Michael Whitford and Patrick Hitchins, topped the 23-boat Corinthian division. With record high temperatures in Tampa, winds were ripping on Saturday, starting at a sustained 16 knots with gusts in the 20s. Four races were completed, as the wind slowly backed off. Sunday saw about 8 knots, dying throughout the day, when two more races took place. The only other race winner of the weekend was Kevin Downey's Mr. Pitiful.

Each Friday of the Series, SAIL22 leads the Porch Series including a North Sails debrief. Mike Marshall was this week's coach. Practice races were run, followed by a debrief and prizes. The Series concludes February 7-9.
