The second edition of the Southernmost Regatta, powered by Sailing, Inc., was sailed from January 16-20 in the gorgeous waters off Key West. Fleets enjoyed the benefits of a slow-moving front that passed over at the beginning of the week, and the ensuing northerlies slowly veered over the week into the east and then southerly quadrants, with breezes mostly in the 8-15 knots range. The seven-boat J/70 fleet was a three-way battle between Dan Goldberg’s BAZINGA, Eduardo Saenz’s NIMBUS and Mike Breivik’s TAZ until the final day of racing, coming down to the wire in the last race. Leading for most of the regatta was Saenz’s Mexican team on NIMBUS. However, a last-race DSQ ruined their chances to be crowned the winner. By posting two bullets on the last day, Goldberg’s BAZINGA team won with 12 points net. NIMBUS was second with 14 points net. Then, Breivik’s TAZ rounded out the podium in third with 15 points net.
