Quantum Sails Top Multiple Classes at GBCA

Quantum® sailors enjoyed many class wins in Texas last weekend at the Galveston Bay Cruising Association Performance Cup.

Quantum teams dominated the J/22 class, taking all three podium spots with a 1-2-3 win and never finishing lower than fourth. Julie Goetschius on Crayola and Anne Lee on Helms a Lee tied with 13 points, but Lee managed to take second overall thanks to her one win and two second place finishes. It was Mitch Clarke and Knot Bad in first with a commanding 7-point victory, winning three of the five races.

In the J/70 class, Quantum’s own Terry Flynn with Chubby Boy Racing took the title. Flynn never dropped out of the top four and won two races for the overall win. Chris Lew’s two wins weren’t quite enough for second place, but his consistent racing and placing in the top five put him on the podium in third.

In the PHRF Spin division it was all about George Cushing, who won six of seven races to take first place.

Congratulations to everyone on an amazing weekend!
