J Boats shined in the light fickle conditions of this years Foulweather Bluff Race, hosted by CYC Edmonds. Taking first in 2 of the 9 classes and in true Sail Northwest fashion first’s was the place of the day for Mike Poole and crew on their just purchased J/80 Skye Rocket. Hull #1 of this highly successful 26′ sportboat on it’s first race with its 1st time boat owner taking first place in fleet 4 and second overall! Well done Skye Rocket!
Just behind Skye Rocket in Fleet 4 was the J/30 Bob in second. Fleet 6 was topped by the J/105 Last Tango followed by the J/105 USAWI in second and the J/33 Corvo in fourth (Corvo is a brand new listing at Sail Northwest!). The J/120 Hinzite sailed home with 2nd in Fleet 9 and 4th overall in a class of high performance ultralights!
The J/35 Bergen Viking took 2nd in Fleet 7, the J/35 Solution took 5th in Fleet 8 and the J/145 Jedi took 5th in Fleet 10. On a difficult current riddled light air sunny Pacific Northwest fall day the J Boats showed once again that the PNW is J Boat country.
