The annual Southern California Yachting Association J/70 Midwinter Regatta took place last weekend in what will be the site for the 2020 J/70 World Championship later this summer.

The sixteen J/70s sailed off Marina del Rey, hosted by California Yacht Club. The J/70 teams soon found out which teams were the boats to beat over the two-day regatta.

The Cal YC PRO managed to get three races completed the first day and two more on Sunday to close the series with five races, all counters and no discards.

Jay Golison's It's All Good from Alamitos Bay YC took the title with a fast-out-of-the-box tally of 2-1-2-3-10 for 18 points. Second was Jim Murrell's Huckleberry with multiple-World Champion David Ullman aboard with a record of 1-4-1-6-9 for 21 points.

The podium was pretty tightly packed as the bronze medal team of Craig Tallman on Jaya finished just three points back with a 5-3-3-10-3 scoreline for 24 points total. Rounding out the top five was Tony Collins' Fly in fourth and Chris Raab's Sugoi in fifth place.
