2023 J/70 Midwinters Championship at Miami, Florida - Day 2

by Julie & Christopher Howell 25 Mar 2023 18:41 PDT March 23 - 26, 2023

Fifty boats have completed six races, but it's the final three scheduled races on Sunday that will determine the J/70 Midwinter Championship in Miami, FL.

Conditions on Biscayne Bay delivered again Saturday with breeze at 10-12 knots with gorgeous skies and seas. The discard race came into effect, but Fernando Perez Ontiveros' Black Mamba maintained the overall advantage with 21 net points (dropping a 28 in race 4, keeping a 1,3 for Saturday). Bruce Golison's Midlife Crisis leapt in the rankings after posting a 5,6,1 on the day for 34 net points.

The battle continues for the next three positions, all tied at 39 points: Bryce Kalow's Superior 2, Bruno Bethlem's Joker and Brian Keane's Savasana. Leading the all-amateur division is still Henry Filter's Wild Child.

The Brutus III team with Charles Thompson and Thomas Mallandine kicked off Saturday triumphantly, followed by Robert Hughes' Heartbreaker and Bethlem's Joker. Ontiveros' Black Mamba earned line honors in the next match, while Jack Franco's 3 Ball JT and David Jannetti's Very Odd cracked the top three. Bruce Golison's Midlife Crisis won the race to shore, chased by Franco and Ontiveros.

Teams, including 10 Corinthians, gathered from across the United States, plus Brazil, Canada, Chile, France, Great Britain, Mexico, Sweden and Turkey.
