J/FEST NORTHWEST 2018

June (22nd) 23rd - 24th

J-Fest-Showbill-2-28-4pm-768x1187.jpg

Sail Northwest, your Northwest J/Boat dealer, invites you to join us for the comeback of the original J/FEST.  For 26 years, we produced some of the best racing and after race socializing available on the planet and only took a break while Seattle sailors explored the NOOD experience - now we're back and ready for J/FEST!  

This is a two-day regatta (with a Friday night PHRF fun race) and is open to all J/Boats owners and crew.    Starts will be provided for ONE DESIGN, PHRF AND CRUISING classes.  The on the water activities are hosted by Sail Northwest and Corinthian Yacht Club of Seattle.  Shoreside activities will be in the Courtyard west of the main building on Friday night and at the CYC Seattle Shilshole clubhouse Saturday and Sunday.

Saturday evening's dinner and door prize extravaganza is always a sellout.  So come on down and join us for what Northwest Yachting Magazine called “the most looked forward to regatta of the year,” J/FEST NW.

Initial one design class commitments from the J/22, J/24, J/80, J/105, J/109 & PHRF commitments from the J/97e, J/122, J/29, J/27, J/30 and Cruising class commitments from J/35c, J/37, J/40, J/44.  Come join the fun, every type of J/boat will be out sailing with us at the end of June!

Registration is open and online at sailnorthwest.com/j-fest

Please contact us with any questions about the weekends festivities, sponsorship and racing questions.

Bummed this is the same weekend as Race Around Orcas.  Would loved to come down the Sound for this.

We now have three 70s in our area, and they are planning to race at our little club once the ice melts. Last time at CYC, there was one for sale in the drysail lot. Years earlier, Mike brought one to WIRW. If you can find a couple in your area to register, I'll work on the three here. We are only six hours away. Deal?

#1110 is still in the dry yard for sale (new boat), #80 has a new owner and he might be interested.  Mike (#16) is busy out of the country most of the time now and #17 is up in Edmonds and might be interested.

The new owner of the J/70 #80 says he plans on bringing his boat to J/Fest.

I'm working on getting at least one here to make the trip. One is in SD at the moment, and the other is a bit intimidated at the moment, but we will fix that (eventually). Also have two interested buyers.

Registration is open and the entrants are starting to roll in - 13 so far - how about a J/100 class?
