Fifty-seven J/70s descended upon Davis Island Yacht Club in Tampa, FL for the start of the 2021-2022 Winter Series and the postponed 2021 J/70 Midwinter Championship. From December 3-5, competitors enjoyed abundant sunshine and warm temperatures, however a lack of breeze allowed only one race which was not enough to constitute a Championship. The lone race winner was Superior 2 comprised of Bryce Kalow, Ian Coleman, Chris Stocke and Kim Sandbulte. The Series is very popular, as boats are stored mast-up for the winter at DIYC. Teams are looking forward to the next two parts of the Series, continuing on January 8-9 and culminating with the 2022 Midwinter Championship on February 4-6. Thank you to Davis Island Yacht Club for opening its doors to the J/70 Class every year and making all participants feel welcome!
