The Southernmost Regatta 2024 - Key West Preview

January 15, 2024 - Key West, FL, U.S.A. - The Southernmost Regatta, powered by Sailing Inc., will be held January 15th to 19th, 2024 on the picturesque blue waters of Key West, FL! In addition to two one-design fleets of J/70s and J/111s, there will be an ORC Division and an ORC Doublehanded Division, enjoying what Key West has to offer.

Imagine being in gorgeous, sunny, Key West, watching sunsets, chatting with friends we haven't seen in months, and enjoying five days of awesome sailing in the aquamarine waters of the Florida Keys, watching dolphins jump, and play around your bows! The teams will be enjoying what makes Key West great; the opportunity to race at a tropical venue, experience the island culture, and reconnect with the friends during the cold winter months.

ORC Division
Sailing in the ORC Division will be Bill Hanckel's J/120 EMOCEAN from Charleston, SC, and Jon Weglarz's J/105 THE ASYLUM from Chicago, IL. Then, in the ORC Doublehanded Division, Joe Kutra will be racing the J/105 SLEEPER from the NEKA Sailing Team in Glen Cove, NY.  Last year's winner, the FOX team, under the ownership and skippering of Victor Wild, is part of the GL52 Racing division in this regatta, racing under ORC rating.
