Sailors from as far as Seattle, WA participated in the 3-day event hosted by Sarasota Sailing Squadron that included an invaluable speed clinic hosted by world-famous Olympic sailor Randy Smyth. Friday and Saturday’s conditions allowed for 3 and 4 races respectively, while drizzly and flat conditions Sunday made for a cancelled race day.
Great food, live music, raffles, a warm fire, beer and great camaraderie met the sailors each afternoon after the races. Here are the final results.
Our first time in Sarasota, and the Sarasota Sailing Squadron did not disappoint! We are looking forward to warmer weather and more racing in 2018, where the event has been slotted for March.
