J/120 Nationals Update

J/120 racing (Detroit, MI)- As many J/Sailors know, the J/120 fleet in the greater Detroit region in the Great Lakes is one of a kind.  They regularly get twelve boats on the line every Wednesday and Saturday for level racing in the Detroit River Yachting Association events.

It is a talented and competitive group of skippers and crew. What the Detroit J/120 sailors are doing with their boats may be one of the best one-design keelboat sailing groups in the country. For example, their last “beer can” evening race had eleven boats competing with the top 3 finishing within 30 seconds of one another after a 7.0nm random leg buoy course.  Friends at Bayview YC and Grosse Pointe YC would be more than happy to introduce you to their incredibly laid-back form of sailing with family and friends.  Learn more here & join the J/120 cruiser/ racers here.
