series, the Congressional Cup. The conditions are considered the best in southern California, with summer sea-breezes often developing out of the West at 10-17 kts.
Over the course of time, the event has become a big J/Fest with six J one-design fleets participating, including J/24s, J/70s, J/80s, J/105s, J/109s and J/120s. In addition, there are two PHRF divisions with several offshore J racing teams sailing.
Five teams are sailing in the J/80s, including multiple class winner Curt Johnson sailing AVET and Cal Week's runner-up Steve Wyman on NUHUNU. The J/24 class has a small turnout but had some good teams participating, including past winner Susan Taylor's TAKE FIVE. For more Long Beach Race Week sailing information
