Comodoro Rasco - Final

Sunday, 04 February 2018 20:56

Miami, February 4, 2018.

Report by Carol Cronin

“The Comodoro Rasco just has its own special vibe.” That’s how Peter Commette describes it, and I agree. I don’t know of any other regatta that combines so well the Serious Sailing, Serious Fun motto. The regatta is an “Old Man” regatta, initiated by Snipe legend Gonzalo “Old Man” Diaz Sr to honor Commodore Manuel Rasco of the Miramar Yacht Club in Havana. Old Man doesn’t believe in throwouts, so it’s a 5 race series over two days. That means no pushing the line or taking chances on the water, and it leaves plenty of time for socializing after sailing.

Comodoro Rasco - Day 1

Saturday, 03 February 2018 23:19

Miami, February 3, 2018.

3 races in a nice 12-18 knots of NE today (along with passing rain showers to rinse off the salt). Raul Rios and Sophia gave the rest of us a sailing lesson after christening a brand new boat just before leaving the dock. Peter/Connie Commette rounded the weather mark first more often than the scores might suggest. And the traditional Comodoro Rasco party at Old Man/Carmen Diaz's house ended with the annual viewing of videos from 1959 Havana. Someone had to explain what a VHS tape was to the junior sailors, but a good time was had by all.

Results after 3 races

1. Raul Rios, 3

2. Peter Commette, 7

3. Carol Cronin, 12

4. Raul Faura, 14

5. David Hernandez, 18
