Weakley Tops 2018 Texas J/22 Circuit

Sailing his J/22 consistently throughout the seven regattas making-up the Texas J/22 Circuit, Doug Weakley (Corpus Christi, TX) came out on top after winning four events and placing well in the remaining three. Here is Doug’s take on the season: "2018 started out great with Jim Kondziela and Joe Mayfield sailing with me on HNL (#24) at the Houston Yacht Club’s Midwinter regatta. We were really fast throughout the event and starting with a bullet in race one. We were pretty excited about our sixth-place finish in the 39-boat fleet, competitive fleet. We then sailed using our new radial jib at Austin Yacht Club and took first in a competitive fleet made of locals and traveling boats. We got back into the boat in the fall and took back-to-back wins at Corpus Christi and Canyon Lake Yacht Clubs and the HYC Heritage Cup. Canyon is all about avoiding a really bad race in the shifty conditions there, and we were the boat that did just that. We look forward to more success in 2019, beginning with the J/22 Midwinters at Ft Walton Beach in March!" Thanks for contribution from Adam Loory at UK Sails.
