FBYC hosted their first ever J/70 Spring regatta on Saturday.  While some of the J/70s were out on the travel circuit 6 - boats gathered at FBYC for what would be 5 races in light to moderate winds.  PRO Glen Doncaster set up 3/4 mile windward leewards in the mouth of the Piankatank River under mostly sunny skies.

Matt Braun and crew on E.L.E. came out of the blocks fresh from competing at Charleston Race Week to win the first two races with good speed and boat work.  David Hinckle on Air Speed would win the 3rd and 5th races with E.L.E. also winning the 4th race putting them 1st overall and Air Speed.

With a string of 2-2-2-2-3 was new comer Jon Deutsch on No Quarter who would loose the tiebreaker with Air Speed who finished 2nd leaving No Quarter in 3rd.  Loonatictu followed in 4th and Hotty Toddy 5th.
