Santa Barbara J/105 owner, Bernie Girod, owner/skipper of ROCK & ROLL, has recently been named President of the J/105 Class. Bernie has been a very active in both California J/105 sailing (the SoCal circuit and St Francis YC's Big Boat Series) as well as on a National level racing J/105s, including the most recent Key West Race Week. Last weekend, Bernie and crew on ROCK & ROLL were sailing on Sunday off Santa Barbara in a 20-30 knot wind, gusting 35+ kts. They happily report they made it safely downwind with no broaches and pushing nearly 20+ knots planing downwind on some huge waves. Rock on amigos! For you J/105 sailors, check out the SBYC's Fiesta Cup- they have an amazing cook-out on the beach celebrating with tasty Mexican tortillas, enchiladas, tacos with gallons of genuine Margaritas and a great band-- you really shouldn't miss it!
