Boats Group’s Senior VP and General Manager Ian Atkins kicked off the year by taking the flagship, a 7 meter hot-rod sailboat, to Key West Race Week and doing what he likes to do best in a sailboat—taking home a trophy.

Quantum Key West 2014 had nearly a dozen different racing classes, and the J/70 class that Atkins sailed in was by far the largest, with 60 boats entered, due to the model’s recent super-successful introduction.
