AYC Junior Fleet headed south down to Jenson Beach, Florida to sail in the C420 Mid Winter Championship. The eight teams got four excellent days of sailing in the warm weather, a great break from the frozen creeks back home! The sailors saw an array of sailing conditions from puffy, light air racing to some big breeze in the afternoons. The Race Committee provided incredible courses and the venue was hospitable, making the event a success all around. Some of the teams came in without much time in the boat together, and all sailors vastly improved through the regatta resulting in half qualifying for Gold Fleet. This event got a lot of sailors thinking about summer sailing again after the long winter and it was a great warm up for high school and for those racing this summer.
