ANGEL OF HARLEM Dominates J/24 Rodeo

J/24s sailing Tampa Bay
(Tampa, FL)- As spring winds down on Tampa Bay, it also marks the occasion for one of the last regattas of the long winter for the J/24 class that sails out of Davis Island Yacht Club. Nine teams registered to participate in last weekend’s J/24 Rodeo Regatta.

The fleet was blessed with good weather, good winds, and a good Davis Island YC Race Committee that managed to snap off five races over the two-day event.

In the end, it was local hero Robby Brown teamed up with Mark Liebel on their infamous ANGEL OF HARLEM that stole the show, accumulating three 1sts and two 3rds to handily win the Rodeo with just six pts net.  Taking second was the duo of Jason Chavez and John Poulson on LONGSHOT, also counting only podium finishes in their final scores for 9 pts net.

Third place was determined on a tie-breaker at 11 pts each. Winning the countback was Seth Rosenthal’s Youth Team on SABOTAGE over AJ Grzybowski’s SHIMMER.  Rounding out the top five was the DIYC Youth Team on YELLOWTAIL.  For more J/24 Rodeo Regatta sailing information Add to Flipboard Magazine.
