J/121 Racing Update

J/121 sailing Caribbean(Newport, RI)- This past weekend, it was a beehive of activity for newly launched J/121s.  All are preparing for the upcoming Newport to Bermuda Race. Joe Brito’s team on INCOGNITO did their first offshore “shakedown” cruise, going around an offshore mark 60nm SSE of Brenton Reef, sailing in up to 40 kts of wind!  Yet another- Steve Levy’s EAGLE- was sailing in the Storm Trysail Club’s famous Block Island Race, a 186nm “practice race” for Bermuda- a great training exercise.  And, one more- David Southwell’s ALCHEMY- was sailing the fun-loving 30nm FIGAWI Race from Hyannis to Nantucket on a random leg course.

For current and prospective J/121 owners, here is an updated schedule of events many J/121 teams are focused on for summer 2018, the fall, and, in particular, the Winter Circuit in 2019.
