Orange Bowl

For those of us who worry about the future of US Olympic sailing, I happened across a great find during the week between Christmas and New Years. There is an event in Miami called the Orange Bowl and it is not the football game. It is a regatta for youth sailors under 18 and there were 664 competitors this year! This has to be the biggest regatta in the USA. The 664 kids were split up into: 293 Optimists, 43 Laser full rigs, 112 Laser Radials, 19 4.7 Lasers, and 95 420
