J/145 JEDI Lovin' Seattle Sailing!

J/145 owners in Seattle, WA (Seattle, WA)- We recently received a report regarding how a J/145 is fairing in its current home in the Pacific Northwest- Seattle, Washington area.  Here is the sweet note from Edie & John Tenneson, owners of the J/145 JEDI:

“We wanted to give you an update on our J/145 JEDI.  We have had her for five years, having brought her up from San Diego in October 2012 (formerly "Rain Cloud"). We have enjoyed racing in the Pacific Northwest doing longer distance races such as Swiftsure and Round the County, local mid-distance series such as the SYC Tri-Island series, and competing in buoy racing in PSSR (Puget Sound Summer Regatta) and PSSC (Puget Sound Spring Championship).

J/145 JEDI sailing Puget Sound off Seattle, WAWe just finished fourth in the Seattle YC invitational Grand Prix this past weekend, holding our own against two TP52s and a RP55.

We now race in the ORC division. New sails, constant learning, and great teamwork have led to many successes.

Our 2001 J/145 is a powerful, all-around cruiser and racer that is a thrill to sail.  She is now the only J/145 in the PNW, and we are proud to have her and be part of the J/Boat family!

Note- our boat name may have its inspiration in the famous characters of Star Wars, but it’s also a conjugation of our names “John + Edie = Jedi”.

We hope you enjoy some recent photos of her in Puget Sound, thanks to our friend and amazing photographer- Jan Anderson from Seattle.  All the Best, Edie and John Tenneson” Add to Flipboard Magazine.
