Fun J/Fest Southwest Regatta

According to Scott Spurlin, J/Dealer in Texas, "The J/Sailors in Texas needed this event! The enthusiasm to get out on the water was over the top! On Friday, the rain was coming down and the gusts were in the 40s, and people still trailered their boats in. We delayed the start on Saturday to give them time to set up and launch. Then we had a full weekend of racing." The J/Fest Southwest Regatta celebrated its 11th anniversary with over 70 boats. Collecting all podium finishes in the J/24 fleet was Chris Holmes’ crew on BAD MOON. Holmes' team cruised to a 2-3-2-3-2-2 record for 14 points. A distant second was taken by Gerald Rademaker's YIKES team, followed by Greg Newsome's SIXTY NINE. The rest of the top five saw Rod Favela's PHANTASM in fourth and Graham Gardner's SURPRISE in fifth position. For more J/Fest Southwest information, visit
