Quantum Sailors Take Top Two Spots in Newport’s J/70 Class

Quantum dominated the J/70 class at the 2014 Newport Regatta last weekend with reps Allan Terhune, Jr. and Marty Kullman finishing in first and second places. Aboard Dazzler, Terhune scratched the results of a disastrous 23rd place finish in the third race, coming back to win the fourth race and finish at the head of the fleet with sixteen points.
“We had a really bad start in the third race, but we were able to pull it back together,” he said. “We knew we were really fast, the boat was going well, so we stuck to the plan, and that’s how we recovered. We didn’t over complicate things. The plan was to sail conservative, sail smart, let the team lead us through the trouble spots, and let the boat pull us through.”
Also sailing strong and consistently was Marty Kullman aboard Touch2Play, taking second place with twenty-four points. “We had good starts and good speed in the lumpy conditions,” he said. “That gave us options to manage the shifts up the beats. We sailed conservative and our results show it.”
Both teams will see each other again this weekend when they meet in Rochester for the J/70 North American Championship. Congratulations, and good luck!
