One of the recently concluded regatta events is Club 420 Midwinter championship.
This regatta was held from 18th to 20th February of this year. There were about 103 boats which participated in the event. It was held on the Jensen beach in Florida, not far from the Tampa Bay area where the Caribbean regatta was in session as well. While the Tampa Bay area has class A catamarans as part of the competitions held during the weekend, the Midwinter championship followed a racing format where races were held for two days through the qualifying rounds. The fleet was then divided into silver and god divisions as per their performances.
The regatta faced their share of weather challenges. The winds were shifty and light, though later parts of the days it was more ideal for sailing. Sailors like Olivia de Olazarra and Tucker Weed were leading in their respective categories and were announced winners on the final day. (more…)
