Interesting on taking our boat Wooton to Key West and the Southern circuit and then track up north to Newport for the worlds in June

I am trying to get a feeling on other J111 that are going to Key West race week

Thanks

Any 111's considering the race down from Lauderdale? Need crew? Not looking at a race week ride but thought this would be a good race on one of these.

Right now Velocity is not planning on KWRW but we are planning to go to CRW, Annapolis NOOD, A2N, BI/Worlds/NYYC/etc next year.  We're waiting to hear on the timing for Worlds so we can line the rest of the series up.

You guys will miss a great week of sailing . We will also miss you guys . See at CRW if it all works out well.

Spoke to Spaceman Spiff , he is in for Key West

All you guys that are going to Key West sign up, you do not have to pay for it for a while.

J/111 Worlds- June 17-20- Newport, RI.  Host t.b.d.  The Worlds are one week after New York YC Regatta and the week before Storm Trysail Club's Block Island Race Week.  So, could sail for three straight weeks of J/111 one-design racing!

shouldn't need 8 boats for a od start - especially when KWRW has had od starts for less 

6 boats should be plenty or the owners should pressure them to make sure they get a OD start

Agree, I will contact them . It is important that as a Fleet we decide to sail in OD trim, weight and pro allowance .
I contacted 2 of the teams plus our team and we all want the OD trim . I do not have all the other contacts yet .
So far My Sharona Wooton and Spaceman Spiff is in on OD a

I think some of the UK/French boats are looking into the worlds in Newport.  

To try to do both may be tough for an amateur crew :-)

Heard KWRW was strong for 111's.

New boat crew DarkHorse (hull #59) is planning on racing in NYYC and World's in Newport.

Would also like to get a OD start at NOOD's Annapolis if we can get more boats.... Any other 111's interested ?

There's Velocity, Bad Cat, Cour de Leon and a new addition (Dark Horse?) on the Chesapeake.  

 

Velocity would like to race in the NOODs if we can get a class start.

We have a conflict on the worlds with the skipper's son getting married that week end so it may change our racing schedule. When is Nap noods, it is usually too close to Charleston week .

What about Fireball?   Thought that boat was based out of Chesapeake/Annapolis as well.

Fireball moved out of the area after the 2013 season, I think it's up in LIS now.

Annapolis NOODs are May 1-3, two weeks after CRW.  If you need logistical support to get to Annapolis or for things like lodging or marine services let me know and I can get the ball rolling on getting you help.  Same for any 111's interested in coming to the NOODs!

The J/111s saw Pensacola, Florida skipper George Gamble steer MY SHARONA to a wire-to-wire victory. Quantum pro Scott Nixon called tactics on MY SHARONA, which displayed superb boat speed in all conditions in winning five races and placing second or third in four others. After a slow start, the 2014 Key West Race Week winner, Rob Ruhlman’s SPACEMAN SPIFF, closed strongly to take second overall for the regatta.  Third was Brad Faber’s UTAH.  Early regatta leader, Bob Hesse’s LAKE EFFECT, sailed consistently to take fourth and lying fifth was William Smith’s WOOTON.

Nice reading about the KWRW goings on. Sounds like a great way to start the season. What is everyone's perspective on the Charleston leg..... Have heard there is an +1hour motor to start line... Good event? Glad to hear momentum is building for a 111 start at the Annap NOODs. DarkHorse crew is readying to racing the Annap NOOD, NYYC regatta, and Worlds. Velocity, Bad Cat, Cour de Leon and DarkHorse make 4 in the Bay.

I do not think the 1 hour motoring to race course should be an issue . We have 7 boats on the line , there is still time for others to make the trip

Charleston is a great event, well worth attending.  The commute to the offshore race course isn't bad at all although you do get back to the dock (and the party) later than the sport boats.

 

We would love to see a J/111 class at the NOODs this year in Annapolis.  So far two boats are signed up, Velocity (local) and My Sharona is coming up from Florida via Charleston as well.  It would be great to see more of the 111's stop in Annapolis on their way up to the Worlds from CRW!

It has been a long season for us and due to work we can not consider Nap town NOODS . I like Annapolis and sailed there few times in couple of Noods and a J 105 NA with 70 boats .

looks like a tough new competitor in the J111 class... based on some of his other racing experience I'd expect him to be fast out of the gate.   :ph34r:
