J/70 Davis Island Winter Series II Preview

J/70s sailing offshore
(Tampa, FL)- Fresh off their winter holidays, who will it be that gets themselves back into the groove first and sails consistently enough to leap to the top of the leaderboard in the second act of the Davis Island Yacht Club J/70 Winter Series?  Will it be Brian Keane's SAVASANA that won the first regatta? Or, will it be other teams from the top of the leaderboard back in December like Will Welle's BRIBONA, John & Marisa Koten's PLANET CLAIRE, or Bruno Pasquinelli's STAMPEDE?

One thing is for sure, the competition from January 10th to 12th is heating up considerably since a number of teams that sailed the Bacardi Miami J/70 Winter Series in December will be joining the Tampa regatta. That means, the 48 boats from act one at the DIYC series will be seeing 7 new crews from across Florida's Everglades Swamp. Yes, making that brave trek on I-75 across the infamous "Alligator Alley" will be fresh faces like Joel Ronning's World Championship team on CATAPULT and the dynamic duo of Jack Franco and Bill Hardesty on 3 BALL JT-- neither one of these crews are "shrinking violets"! Quite the contrary, do not be surprised to see both of these teams vying for the top spots on the podium when the smoke clears on Sunday afternoon!  For more Davis Island Winter Series sailing information Add to Flipboard Magazine.
