Lakewood Racers Sweep J/105 Mid-Winters
At the national J/105 Mid-Winter Championship Regatta held March 9 – 12 on Galveston Bay, Lakewood Yacht Club racers won the top four trophies.
Dominating three days of challenging weather conditions in Galveston Bay, Bill Zartler’s J/105 Solaris led the pack in most every race. “Our racing philosophy is to keep the boat moving forward and fast,” explained Zartler. “That is the most important thing.” Zartler also said that his team had the advantage of crewing together for a long time in all kinds of weather, all over the country.
