The relative obscurity of Peter Duncan only required 8 out of the 9 races at the Championship of J/70 Midwinter in order to collect the title of 2019. 50 J/70 also enjoyed the conditions for Biscayne Bay of postcard for around 3 days, but no one more than the team of Relative Obscurity which belongs to Willem Waay, Bill Hardesty and Will Felder, who counted for 18 net points.
“The reality is practice and all of the small things that really make a huge difference,” summarized by Duncan.” “You also have to do these things consistently, and then it will become your second nature. So when you are supposed to make those important decisions, it is very easy.”
Duncan also explained the conservative approach of the team, saying that, “We have come off the very middle of the line, and thereafter we went straight as far as we were able to go. If we can manage to hold our own lane, it will be a great positive.” While Duncan who is the World Champion of the year 2017 J/70 in a lot of conditions, they definitely like some extra breeze. “These boats are amazing for sailing, and whenever there are 50 or more than those boats, it becomes very exciting.”
