AYC Members Continue Successful Runs in Florida

Linda Ambrose, Regatta Manager

While most of us enjoyed a couple of chilly Frostbite races yesterday, other members were enjoying big breeze and sunshine in a multitude of one design racing. In the Etchells Class, Jose Fuentes on Caramba, competing in the 2018/2019 Biscayne Bay Regatta Series, came in 2nd in the Florida State Championship over the weekend in a 46 boat strong fleet. The entry list for this event was a veritable “who’s who” of both professional and amateur sailors, including America’s Cup team members and the 2018 J/70 World Champion. Read more from Scuttlebutt Sailing News.

The Star Class held its final event of the 2018-2019 Winter Series, which attracted 42 competitors in the Walker Cup. Congratulations to John von Schwarz crewing on the 10th overall winning boat. Read more from Scuttlebutt Sailing News.

The J/70 Class wrapped up its winter series at Davis Island Yacht Club. Winning the 3rd and final event of the series was Savasana, with long time crew member Ron Weed on board, which gives the team the overall series win for the 2018-2019 series. Congratulations to Peter Bowe on Tea Dance Snake, who finished in 4th place in the final series event in the Corinthian Class, which was 21 boats strong.  Quite a few members will be sailing at the Helly Hansen NOOD Regatta in St. Petersburg, Florida, this coming weekend. Best of luck to all NOOD competitors.
