Lakewood Yacht Club in Seabrook, TX hosted the J/Fest Regatta this past weekend. Over 60 J Boats participated in racing offered in one design classes and PHRF for the larger boats. J Boats designer Rod Johnston was on hand to race his latest project the J/88. Side note: Quantum has designed sails for the J/88; see more here.
Saturday’s weather was picture perfect. Temperatures in the 70s and winds between 20 to 25 knots made for a trying day. Sunday was a bit lighter, but still plenty of wind with highs of 18 knots.
Quantum J boat customers showed off their speed in all classes including:
J/22 - 1st Casey Lambert, 3rd Chris Morlan , 4th Anne Lee , 5th Ken Taylor
J/70 - 2nd Chris Lewis (main and jib) , 4th Sean Nunes (also won the J/70 Southwest Circuit) 5th Richard Bell
J/80 - 1st Terry Flynn/David Whelan 2nd Luke McAllum (jib), 4th Forbes Durdin
