Could not find any pictures of the racing on the site yet so I took this picture which I found pretty interesting.
Day one of Quantum Key West Race week was very typical, sunshine and 8-12 knots of wind from the northeast.
I am onboard George Sakellaris’ 68′ Shockwave this week and we are racing in the Mini Maxi division with two other competitors: Bella Mente and Numbers.
Bella Mente won this class last year and is off to a good start this year gettung a second and a first today. She seems very fast. Numbers won the first race.
We on Shockwave had a bad first race and a little better second race finishing second.
The wind was very shifty and even fickle as it came straight over the island into our race course.
Two races are scheduled each day through Friday.
Tomorrow’s forecast is for lighter winds at 7-10 knots from the Southeast.
Although I could not find them at the time of this writing, complete results should be at www.premiere-racing.com.
