J’s Ignite Seal Beach to Dana Point Race

J/125 sailing off California (Dana Point, CA)- This past weekend the Seal Beach YC and the Dana Point YC hosted their fun “wind sprint” over the 4th of July weekend, the 35.0nm Seal Beach to Dana Point Race for a fleet of 30-plus PHRF racers. Fun was had by all in the relatively fast race, the fast boats doing the race in just over 3.5 hours- about a 10.0 kts average.

In the PHRF A Division, taking 1st in Class and 1st Overall was Viggo Torbensen’s famous J/125 TIMESHAVER. Not too far behind were their friends on the J/120 POLE DANCER, sailed by Tom & Terri Manok, taking 2nd in class as well as 2nd Overall!

In the PHRF B Division, yet another J/crew celebrated the huge fireworks of the American Independence Day weekend; winning was Rich Bennet’s J/92 FIREWATER….or was it “fireworks”?!  For more Seal Beach to Dana Point Race sailing information. Add to Flipboard Magazine.
