First-time St. Petersburg NOOD skipper David Jannetti won top honors in the J/70 fleet. With a 1-5 scoreline Sunday, Jannetti and his teammates on Very Odd cemented their lead. While they finished fifth in the final race, Jannetti said it was the result of a strategic decision to ensure no surprises from Dave Kerr’s second-place USA 1516. “We were keeping tabs on them and doing a loose cover,” said Jannetti. “While that was our worst finish, it was still the right thing to do.” Jannetti, of Miami Beach, FL, said he is already planning his return. “St. Pete is such a fun and vibrant city. We enjoyed great sailing all weekend; and it has been a great way to warm up for next weekend’s J/70 Midwinter Championship.” For complete regatta information, visit
