FBYC J70 Summer Regatta

2015 FBYC J70 Summer Regatta II


We had a great day for J/70 racing at Fishing Bay Yacht Club in the 2nd J/70 Summer Regatta.  With 7 boats and 6-13 knot winds we were able to sail 5 races in the mouth of the Piankatank River with the wind out of the south west.

We started a little slow having not learned our lesson about the current in this part of the Piankatank that we learned during the Laser Atlantic Coast Championship sailed in the same area last spring.  And we were also figuring out the boat sailing 3-up with Dave and Andrew.  But we got better as we went.  The crew work came together and we were able to put the boat where we wanted it.  The racing was close with Ron T and Clark/Drake and we wound up 2nd overall.

2015 FBYC J70 Summer Regatta I


The FBYC J70 Summer Regatta was a light air affair for the 7 boats out racing in the Piankatank.  While we were a little off-speed – we got a lot of boat handling practice and made some great strides in getting through the corners more quickly.  Thanks John, Ron and Gabe for a fun day on the water.
