Coconut Grove, Florida
Today was the first day of the Commodores Cup which is the second regatta of the Star Winter Series down here in south Florida. There are 5 events in the series, about one a month.
Today, we had three races on Biscayne Bay for the Star fleet in knots from the north.
The races were tight with lots of lead changes as the wind was shifty coming offshore which makes the racing a lot of fun.
Larry Whipple with Brain Fatih crewing had a 5, 1, 4 while Brian and I had a 2, 3, 5. We are tied for first after day one.
Miami’s Augie Diaz won race 1 and Thomas Horno won race 3.
Two races are scheduled for tomorrow and the forecast is for 5-8 knots from the northeast.
