Rare J/90 Sailing Fast in Florida!

J/90 PHRF winners(Pensacola, FL)- John Guy has been sailing one of the rare J/90’s produced by J/Boats many moons ago.  He passed along his recent experience having a great time with this early J/Boats speedster:

“I just wanted to share with you our recent win in J/90 #6 at the West Florida Ocean Racing Conference in Pensacola, FL. The regatta consisted of five windward/leeward races and one ocean race over three days ending October 15th. We won Class A with scores of 1-2-1-2 (ocean race)-1-1.

In addition, Class A was declared to be the most competitive class, so we won the overall regatta and the Riddle Cup (so named after a prominent sailboat racing family in Pensacola).

The picture shows a large silver tray for winning Class A, a wooden ship's wheel for winning Class A, a glass keeper Riddle Cup trophy vase held by John, the perpetual silver Riddle Cup trophy, and small silver trays for the winning crew!” 

Thanks John for this heart-warming report! Add to Flipboard Magazine.
