2017 Key West Race Week Recap

Quantum Key West Race Week wraps up today after an exciting week. If you missed any of the action you can check out the links below to get caught up. We’ve assembled all the race resources so you don’t have to search far. But first, here is the final recap from the Quantum Key West Race Week Blog:

C&C 30 Flying Jenny won the last race of Quantum Key West Race Week by inches to take second place for the series. After 11 races Sandy Askew’s Flying Jenny was 2 points behind Kip Meadow’s Roxanne. They were match racing up the first windward leg and were able to break away to round second at the first mark. It was neck and neck with Don’t Panic all the way to the end and they fought hard to win the final race.
Tim Healy and John Mollicone on New England Ropes consistently worked their way through the J/70 fleet to finish ahead of Calvi Network to win the regatta. The real story is that Marty Kullman and New Wave went into the day 6 points behind Calvi Network and ended in a tie for second place with Calvi Network. Because New Wave has more firsts than Calvi Network, they win the tie breaker to take second place for the week with Calvi Network third. Brian Keane with Savaana finished fourth overall and current world champions Joel Ronning was fifth for the series.
Congratulations to all the sailors, race committee, race organizers and volunteers for an awesome week.
