J-Championships Wrap Up… and On to Frostbiting!
Were there any boats on the Bay that did not begin with a J last weekend? Perhaps not in Annapolis. With J/22 and J/24 East Coasts, J/35 Mid-Atlantics, and J/105 Chesapeake Championships all under way, there wasn’t much room left for anyone else to race. Down in Hampton, however, on all kinds of boats, frostbite season kicked off… Here’s your racing roundup for the weekend of October 27-28.
