The Fort Worth Boat Club invites you and your crew to the 2018 J/70 Corinthian National Championship

The Fort Worth Boat Club will be hosting the 2018 J/70 Corinthian National Championship on April 25th through April 29th.   This will be the third time this event has been held and the first time it hasn’t been on the East Coast.  This Regatta will be a World Qualifier!

The Fort Worth Boat Club on Eagle Mountain Lake was chosen because of the excellent weather and sailing in late April and its proximity to Club de Vela La Peña Fraccionamiento la Peña, Valle de Bravo, Mexico which will be hosting the J/70 North American Championship 2 weeks later on May 14 – 20th.   In addition, the Fort Worth Boat Club has a very active J/70 fleet, with  several of the class’s top amateur competitors already registered.  We will also have some charter boats available in case travel with your boat appears too difficult!

This is a Corinthian event. All competitors, including the owner/driver and crew shall provide proof of their World Sailing Group 1 classification by providing their World Sailing number on the event’s Yachtscoring crew list. Registration is open on the event website  2018 Corinthian National Championship FWBC.

In addition to three great days of racing, our goal is to make this regatta an opportunity for all competitors to improve their performance and great amounts of information will be shared with top pro coaches on-site and assisting.   We are also pleased that long time FWBC friend and sailor Bruce Golison will be our PRO.

While a lot of the US and Canada are in winter dry dock, our sailing season is already in full swing in Fort Worth.  Competitors that are heading further south for the NA’s are invited to leave your boats here.   If you need to drop your boat off in February from the Florida regattas, bring it on – we can accommodate you!

We look forward to having some 40 plus boats for the Best Racing and Party’s in Texas.  Please feel free to reach out to me directly if you have questions; and we look forward to seeing you on the starting line in April!
