It was a gorgeous weekend of sailing in California for the J/Fest San Diego Regatta. The final race determined everything for the closely fought leaders in the J/70 fleet. David Hochart’s USA 540 and Tony Collins’ FLY finished tied on points as a result of Hochart’s last race win. Losing the countback was Collins’ FLY. The final position on the podium was determined by a battle between Drew Belk’s KAWAU BAY and Curt Johnson’s AVET 2.01. Belk’s eighth in the final race was enough to overcome Johnson’s fifth place to secure the bronze medal. Rounding out the top five was Steve Wyman’s NUNUHUNU with 26 points.
