Chaz Shows his Class at J-CupWednesday 6th June 2018
The Davanti Tyres boat won the class for the second year in a row, ably skippered by Chaz Ivill and his crew, but was pushed hard all the way by Mike & Sarah Wallis’ J/122 Jahmali, which won the last two races of the series to come runner-up.
Mike Lewis’ J/80 Jester was on the podium for all but one race, to finish the regatta in third, and Angus Bates J/133 Assarain IV also made the podium. Piotr Nahajski’s J/95 Jollity was fifth.
“We had some really good teams to race against, and the variety of conditions and courses kept us on our toes the whole regatta.” said Chaz. “I have hardly ever missed a J-Cup, because it is an outstanding event, and really well organised which attracts a great bunch of people to come and race their team. Racing with lots of boats on the race course, was a great experience, and good practice for Cowes Week.”
