The 2017 Southwest District Circuit winners were announced last weekend at the last Circuit of the Season. There were 7 Circuit Regattas scheduled with only 6 being held because of the Corpus Christy Circuit stop being cancelled due to Hurricane Harvey. Still, we had 39 Southwest District J22’s participating in one or more of the Circuits this season. Out of those, 15 were Fleet 6 J22’s!
The scoring is the total of the Circuit points awarded in the boat’s best four completed Circuit Regattas. The competitor with the lowest Circuit score wins, and others are ranked accordingly. The 2017 winner was Vincent Ruder of Kemah and crew Brant Koepke and Glenn Harrison. Stuart Lindow of Seabrook earned 2nd place, Kevin Orff and Eric Simonson of Houston took home a 3rd place trophy, Keith Zars of Canyon Lake placed 4th, and Dov Kivlovitz of El Jardine took 5th. Four out of the top five trophies went to Fleet 6 J22’s!
Way to represent Fleet 6!
