Three races were held today off Miami’s South Beach. The winds were 14-22 knots from the West which made it very shifty and tricky as this meant the wind was coming off the shore.
It was a mixed bag in the results with Katusha and Artemis each winning one of the three races.
Katusha ended up 7th in the fleet racing, one place behind Cereef. This means we tie for this event but they win the tie breaker, but that we are ahead of them in the overall standings in 7th place for the 2010 Championship Tour.
Artemis ended up 5th in the fleet racing and a very credible 2nd overall in this Miami event and a very good 3rd overall to BMW ORACLE Racing and “17” for the season.
So that is the end of the 2010 sailing season. Very busy….maybe too much at times.
Artemis is continuing with our Extreme 40 training for a few more days down here in Miami.
Next season will see Artemis and Katusha continuing with the RC44 circuit beginning in San Diego in early March. We will also be racing on the Extreme 40 circuit which begins mid March in Oman.
