The J/70 class boasted 54 boats at this year’s Key West Race Week—impressive, given that the event saw 146 boats, total. Equally impressive was Gannon Troutman—age 12 and believed to be the youngest skipper in the race’s history—and his Pied Piper crew (including his dad, Dan) who finished fifth overall, smoking plenty of great one design sailors. All told, Pied Piper racked up first, second and third-place finishes, and seven other top-20 finishes. Bravo!
