Paul Ward’s J/70 Eat, Sleep, J Repeat is the reigning J/70 World Champion and the top crew of Scott, Cumbley and Trindade have come a long, long way together. However, they had to be at the top of their game to win the class at the 2020 Landsail Tyres J-Cup. New to the J/70 is Nick Phillips’ Team Chaotic, and the young team from Parkstone YC put in a stellar performance in a RTYC charter boat to take runner-up in the 21-boat fleet. Charles Thompson’s Brutus managed two bullets in the series and was a close third.
“To have 21 teams out racing was just superb,” smiled Paul Ward. “I have to say that the race management and shoreside organisation by the RORC was first class, and that is so important. Well done especially to Chaotic and Brutus who gave us a run for our money in every race. Eat Sleep J Repeat are looking forward to some great racing at the J/70 UK Nationals next weekend.”
