J/70 Racing Season Heats Up

Fifty-three J/70 teams traveled to Davis Island Yacht Club in Tampa, Florida for the first event of the 2016-2017 Quantum J/70 Winter Series on December 10-11. Basking in sunshine and breeze between 10-18 knots for seven races, Marty Kullman on Reach Around finished strong to secure the weekend victory with 13 points.  J World was there with a three student and one coach team as well as providing coaching and logistics support to several other J/70 teams from around the country.

Kullman was able to discard a 15 from the opening contest, and added in four bullets. Bruno Pasquinelli’s Stampede took second place with 19 points, followed by Darby Smith’s Africa with 35.

The 23-boat Corinthian division was topped by Andrew Loe.
