Jeremy Thorp wins J-70 Southerns

 
Jeremy Thorp's Phan was overall winner of the J/70 UK Class Southern Area Championships.

Thorp, sailing with Ben Cooper, Martin Evans and Matt Reid, included four race wins in his scoreline to take the regatta by a fourteen margin.

John Greenland was racing in the J/70 Class for the first time. Greenland's Corinthian team recovered from a poor start to post 1-2-2 on the last day, taking second for the regatta, just two points ahead of Patrick Liardet's Cosmic.

The J/70 Southern Area Championships, hosted by the Royal Thames Yacht Club, attracted 19 J/70 teams for two days of thrilling racing in sparkling early summer weather.

Seven races were held in classic Solent sea breeze conditions, with the wind speed piping up to a glorious 18 knots in bright sunshine.

Eight teams scored podium race scores including; Clive Bush's Darcey, Fiona Hampshire's Elizabeth, Ossie Stewart's Alfie, Andrew Barraclough's Jenga8, Doug Struth's DSP, and David McLeman's Offbeat.
