Quantum Key West 2013: What a week!  Five days of good wind, sunshine and warm weather. Oh, and dolphins too, who also enjoyed scoping out this year’s hot new class: the J70 fleet.  With 39 entries, many of them unwrapping their new boats just for this event, the class made a very impressive showing.  And the boat turned out to be just as strong.  We loved shooting them planing downwind almost as much as we would have loved being aboard these boats as they nimbly sped around the race course.  See our photos here.

In addition to the J70s, the Melges 24s and Melges 32s had strong fleets, as did the TP52s, Farr 40s, and Swan 42s.  Even IRC 1, with just two entries, was a pleasure to watch as Bella Mente and Shockwave battled out a very close regatta.  See the results here.

This past week marked our seventh year in a row at Key West Race Week.  And just like in years past, as the regatta comes to a close, it’s time to sign up again for next year. Coming off of five days of good racing, sunshine, turquoise waters, and bike riding around Key West, how could we not?  See you in 2014, Key West.
