It was a gorgeous weekend of sailing in California for the J/Fest San Diego Regatta. In the J/105 fleet, Chuck Driscoll’s JUICED won three races in their five-race series en route to a dominating class win. However, behind them it was a battle for the balance of the podium including Steve & Lucy Howell’s BLINK!, Stew Cannon’s J-OK and Jeff Brown’s SWEET KAREN. As each team enjoyed a roller-coaster ride up and down the standings, it was the Howells’ BLINK! that took the silver (that was based on winning a tie-breaker over Cannon’s J-OK at 18 points each). Rounding out the top five was Brown’s SWEET KAREN just one point back with 19 points, and still only 1 point behind them was Rich Bergmann’s ZUNI BEAR with 20 points.
