Based off early morning forecasts, it appeared a lay day might be in the cards for competitors at Quantum Key West Race Week 2015. However, organizers with Premiere Racing saw a small pocket of sailable conditions and sent the fleet out to the three race courses. Division 1 completed two races while Divisions 2 and 3 both got in one to keep the regatta moving along. Jud Smith remained the leader in the J/70 class (in its Midwinter Championship) for the second straight day, sailing Africa to sixth on Wednesday and adding two points to his advantage over Bennet Greenwald and Perseverance. Trey Sheehan steered Hooligan to third on Wednesday and is now tied with Perseverance on points. “Everybody is working together very nicely, and the boat is moving real well,” said Michael Sheehan, who is crewing for his brother. “We were saying on the way back into the dock that we are not going to change anything. We are just going to keep doing what we’ve been doing.” Brad Boston is tactician on Hooligan, which has a home port of Put-in-Bay, Ohio and a team comprised of close friends who grew up together in the greater Cleveland area. “We’ve been able to get off the line clean, and we haven’t taken any flyers,” Michael Sheehan said. “Brad is really sharp about looking up the course and seeing what we’ve got coming.” Follow the event blog at http://premiere-racing.com/2015blog/.
