Looking for the best one design race training this winter? Look no further than J World Annapolis’ Davis Island J/70 Winter series events.
J/70 racing has taken the country by storm and even weekend regattas can have 50-70 boats on the line. Fast, fun and easy to sail – the J/70 is a great one design trainer allowing even new racers to learn the fine points of boat handling, boats speed, strategy, tactics and starting technique. Racing against the best is the fastest way to improve your racing skills and gain real first hand experience.
The 2017/2018 J World Annapolis’ J/70 Winter Series will be spread across three events taking place at the Davis Island Yacht Club in Tampa Florida.
The Davis Island Yacht Club is a private, member-owned yacht club situated at the south end of Davis Islands in Tampa, Florida. The Club grounds form a natural harbor and breakwater for our docks and a mooring area designated on charts as a seaplane basin.
On the practice days we will focus on upwind sail trim, boat handling, team coordination, and spinnaker handling. We will rotate roles throughout the event allowing the entire crew an opportunity to improve in all areas of racing. With cooperating conditions we would expect to have 6 to 8 races over the course of the regatta.
Each event consists of three days of training, followed by two or three days of big fleet, one design racing. Tuition is $2195. Tuition includes instruction, entry in regatta and post racing parties, and a team jersey. Want to do multiple events or bring your intact team – contact us for discount details.
