J/90 Wins GYA Challenge Cup

J/90 crew
(Gulfport, MS)- The J/90 HOT TODDY recently won Class A of the 2019  GYA Challenge Cup hosted by the Gulfport Yacht Club In MS. Class A included 2 well raced and well-funded M32’s (War Canoe and Rougaroo) which are the perennial winners of Gulf Coast sailboat racing.

As the winner of Class A, HOT TODDY helped Pontchartrain Yacht Club to third place in the team competition and won several class A boat of the day trophies, the Overall Class A trophy, and the prestigious Buddy Friedricks perpetual trophy for the winner of Class A. This will be on display at the Pontchartrain Yacht Club for one year.

Said John Guy, crew on HOT TODDY, “we had to sail really hard and well to correct out and defeat both of these well-sailed M32’s. The weather was really great for the three days of racing, that included one long distance race and six windward-leeward races.” Add to Flipboard Magazine.
