View Full Version : Look Who's Coming For Summer

02-13-2014, 12:19 PM

Drew Harper, now working with Sail California indicates the following:

A VERY well equipped J111 seen here heading from Chicago to San Francisco (it's at KKMI now). The new owner plans on racing her one design.
That makes 10 total on Bay, 1 in cruising mode!

Another new J111 heading out from the factory to its new owner, next week.

Eight 111's on the line for 2014 :-) That's Andy McCormick's rig towing the boat, which he uses boats back and forth across the country. Andy plans on modifying the trailer into a multi boat rig so he can haul several smaller boats simultaneously to various events and locals.

Here's the schedule

On the J-70 fleet Drew indicates:

It’s going to be an exciting year for the J70 class. We’re up and running with a great series of races scheduled for 2014. There are currently 10 on the Bay and 2 more in route.

We're sold out of J70's until the May shipment. We have 4 coming that month that are currently (as of 1/29/14) unspoken for. We'll sell these long before arrival so if you know of anyone interested, please have them reach out to me (Drew), Garett, Norm, Pat, Teri, Dinah or Roger and we will put a boat on hold for them. Only takes $3,000 to hold a boat. http://www.sailcal.com/
