Jaksonville, December 7, 2013. Regatta report by Hal Gilreath
We had a small but competitive fleet which came to the Rudder Club in Jacksonville for the annual Gator Bowl Regatta. It's a multiclass regatta where Snipes also share the course with Thistles and Flying Scots.
While the rest of the country suffered through ice storms, snow, freezing temperatures and winter, we sailed in summer conditions under a sunny sky. We could have used some more breeze, but it's hard to beat sitting outside in shorts socializing with good friends and a tasty drink.
Santiago de la Ribera, December 8, 2013.
Two races in light wind, the second of them rounding the time limit for the start.
Light wind for both, but a little bit more during the second race up to 6 knots.
Manu Hens and Alexandre Tinoco from Belgium won, second was Jostein Grodem and Kristin Hansen from Norway. Third position for Enrico Solerio and Paolo Lambertenghi from Italy.
