Inaugural J/70 Midwinters Announced for Key West

It’s official!  The first J/70 Midwinters will take place at Quantum Key West Race Week this coming January.  In support of the worldwide launch of this exciting new class, Premiere- Racing has graciously organized a stand-alone J/70 racing circle just west of Sunset Key (only a 20 minute sail from the Truman Annex launch ramp).

A special entry fee of $700 includes ramp launching and trailer/boat storage for the week at Truman Annex.  This will be a big help for those looking to “do Key West” on a budget.  Attached please find the Official KW NOR, which is just being distributed and will soon be posted on the event website.

For dealers/owners looking to ship their new boats directly to Key West from Rhode Island, there will be an opportunity to share trucking expense as part of a multi-boat shipment.  Please let us know if you are interested and we’ll circulate information as soon as it’s available.

Once the boats are in Key West, there will also be delivery and storage services available for the rest of the J/70 circuit events following Key West, like St. Pete NOOD Regatta in February, Bacardi Sailing Week in March, Charleston Race Week in April, and Annapolis NOOD Regatta in May.
