J/70 North Americans

This is going to be a short report as well.  There are some excellent summaries of the regatta already circulating.  As for J/World, we had three boats entered in 2015 J/70 North American Championships in San Diego, and three coaches involved with various teams.  As you might expect in a hotly contested one-design fleet with some 50 boats on the line, ALL the racing was tight.  Seriously, this was way too much fun.  The boats are mostly straightforward, so the big gains and losses are from tactical decisions, strategic plays, and – of course – just sailing the boat to it’s potential!  The three F’s of doing well (no, THAT’s not one of them…):  Focus, Focus, and Focus…



We have been sailing a lot of J/70s lately and are excited about the class.  We have two boats available in San Francisco, and two more in San Diego.  Qualified teams can charter the boats for West Coast events, and J/World is conducting occasional J/70 clinics (visit here for more info).   Of course, we also offer private coaching services, so if you are really looking to get up to speed in this highly competitive fleet, we can assist in jump starting your program.
