MAJIC Crowned J/24 Kings Day Regatta Champion

The Florida Yacht Club and J/24 Fleet 55 hosted 21 J/24 competitors to a weekend of competitive sailing at the 2020 Kings Day Regatta November 21-22 in Jacksonville, FL. The racing Saturday and Sunday had a total of six races sailed on the St. Johns River. It was a see-saw battle for the podium all weekend long as each time was trying to dial-in not just speed-mode in the flat water, but also getting into sequence in the shifty breezes. Starting off with a 1-5-1 on the first day, Greg Griffin's MAJIC played their local knowledge, ending the day with a strong lead. The other day's winner was Robby Brown's ANGEL OF HARLEM from Davis Island YC, gliding into second for the day. They were followed by Dan Borrer's JESUS LIZARD just one point behind. The first race of Sunday saw all three teams struggling to even finish in a podium position as they covered each other around the race track. However, it was Borrer's JESUS LIZARD that closed the regatta with double bullets to take the silver. Griffin's MAJIC hung in close and took the win by two points. Brown's ANGEL OF HARLEM crew was fast and consistent, but a Black Flag in the last race dispelled their chances for the overall win. Instead, the HARLEM crew had to settle for the bronze. The winning team on MAJIC consisted of skipper Greg Griffin and crew of Will Newton, Skip Allcorn, Mike Reddaway and Emma Newton. The silver medal crew on JESUS LIZARD was Dan Borrer driving, with team of Kelly Holleran, Steve Lopez, Barbara Gold and Max Lopez. The bronze medal winners on ANGEL OF HARLEM were Robby Brown on the helm, with crew of Beau Delapouyade, Richard Shellow, Steve Lowery and Kevin Ratigan.
