by Julie & Christopher Howell 24 Mar 17:22 PDT March 23 - 26, 2023

Blue skies, warm temperatures and breeze around 10 knots greeted 50 boats opening the J/70 Midwinter Championship in Miami, FL. Teams, including 10 Corinthians, gathered from across the United States, plus Brazil, Canada, Chile, France, Great Britain, Mexico, Sweden and Turkey.

2022 Midwinter Champion Fernando Perez Ontiveros' Black Mamba stayed hot, leading the fleet with 17 points in three races (5,2,10). Dan Goldberg's Bazinga! went 2,17,3 on the day for second place at 22 points. Bryce Kalow's Superior 2 lands in third place with 24 points. Leading the all-amateur division is Henry Filter's Wild Child.

Bryce Kalow's Superior 2 kicked off Friday with a victory, while Goldberg's Bazinga! got the second and David Jannetti's Very Odd was next. Doug Rastello's Good To Go was just that in the middle contest, ahead of Ontiveros' Black Mamba and Dick Kalow's Superior 1. Ralph Rosa's Mindset closed the day on top, trailed by Victor Demaison's Three Musketeers and Goldberg.

Racing continues through Sunday. Complete results available here.
