Zhik 2021 Dec Choice of Champions LEADERBOARD

2021-22 J/70 Winter Series begins in Tampa, FL

by Julie & Christopher Howell 5 Dec 2021 18:33 PST December 2-5, 2021

Fifty-seven J/70s descended upon Davis Island Yacht Club in Tampa, FL for the start of the 2021-2022 Winter Series and the postponed 2021 J/70 Midwinter Championship.

From December 3-5, competitors enjoyed abundant sunshine and warm temperatures, however a lack of breeze allowed only one race which was not enough to constitute a Championship. The lone race winner was Superior 2 comprised of Bryce Kalow, Ian Coleman, Chris Stocke and Kim Sandbulte.

The Series is very popular, as boats are stored mast-up for the winter at DIYC. Teams are looking forward to the next two parts of the Series, continuing on January 8-9 and culminating with the 2022 Midwinter Championship on February 4-6.

Thank you to Davis Island Yacht Club for opening its doors to the J/70 Class every year and making all participants feel welcome!
