Delta Ditch J/70 Blast!

J70 sailing San Francisco (Richmond, CA)- The J/70s sailed as a class in this year’s crazy Delta Ditch Run, that annual classic that starts off Richmond YC in the upper San Francisco Bay and finishes in Stockton, CA, 60nm east up the Sacramento and San Joaquin Rivers.  The top J/70s managed to cover the race course in just over 10 1/2 hours!  That’s quick considering that is about a 5.7 kt average SOG against a 1.5 to 2.0 kt current!

Leading the J/70s was Tom Jenkin’s DFZ, second was Brant Adornato’s HELLCAT, third was Justin Fox’s FLOTEK and fourth was Chris Andersen’s PERFECT WIFE.  For more Delta Ditch Race sailing information
