J/70 Midwinters @ Key West Race Week 2015!

J/70s sailing fast off Key West (Key West, FL)- Capitalizing on a 60-boat J/70 fleet at the 2014 Midwinter Championship in Key West, FL, the J/70 Midwinter Championship will again be conducted as part of Key West Race Week in 2015. The 28th edition of the week-long event is scheduled for January 18-23, 2015, and this will be the fourth straight year that QUANTUM SAILS will serve as title sponsor.

Kathy Parks, owner of Sundog, shares the enthusiasm of many other J/70 owners, saying, “The Division 2 race committee gave us another great QUANTUM Key West Regatta. I love the five days of racing, which we rarely see anywhere else and we love the energy at the panels, party and awards.”

Tim Healy has won both previous renditions of the J/70 Midwinter Championship in America's southernmost city, including “Boat of the Week” honors this past January.  Who will be the first to challenge Healy in his domination of Key West so far?  Perhaps many, time will tell.   For more 2015 Key West J/70 Midwinters sailing information.
