MINOR THREAT Tops Fiesta Cup

J/70 sailing Fiesta Cup (Santa Barbara, CA)- The annual Fiesta Cup Regatta took place in the “Riviera of America”- the famous crescent shaped miles long beach that forms the waterfront for Santa Barbara, California. Hosting the event was the Santa Barbara Yacht Club for the fleet of a dozen highly competitive J/70 class one-design sailboats.

Winning his first major event in awhile was Jeff Janov’s crew on MINOR THREAT from California YC in Marina del Rey, CA. After a slow start of a 4-4-2, they threw down the gauntlet, closing with four 1sts in a row to win with just 10 pts net.

Second was Chris Snow’s COOL STORY BRO from San Diego YC, third Scott Deardorff’s CAKE from Santa Barbara YC, fourth Pat Toole’s 3 BIG DOGS also from SBYC, and fifth Bruce Cooper’s USA 32 from Long Beach YC. For more Santa Barbara Fiesta Cup sailing information Add to Flipboard Magazine.
