Miami, April 8, 2018.

Taylor Scheuermann and Isa Du Plessis win the Miami Women's Snipe Invite

Lighter winds prevailed on day two with Scheuerman and Du Plessis winning two of the three final races. Rounding out the podium were Dubovik and Baab in second and Sharon Johnson and Tara Lobo in third. Ernesto Rodriguez and Peter Commette were the on-water fleet coaches of the day.

A huge thanks to Miami Fleet Captains Kay and Ken Voss for organizing the event, Ernesto Rodriguez, Peter Commette, and Augie Diaz for lending boats and coaching.

APRIL FOOLS' DAY - THIS IS A JOKE

An investigative reporter has discovered that Commodore of SCIRA Pietro Fantoni stayed at Mar-a-lago resort during his recent trip to Florida for the Snipe DonQ Regatta in Miami.

Former Commodore Gwyneth Crook was stunned when she was shown the receipts for Fantoni's stay, which he had billed back to the Snipe class through a series of blind international transactions. "He claims there was no collusion." she said, shaking her head, "but he can't argue with the paperwork."

Don Q - Final

Monday, 26 March 2018 00:11

Miami, March 25, 2018. Results after 8 races (1 discard)

Report by Carol Cronin

The 52nd DonQ Rum Keg Regatta delivered its dependable mix of Serious Sailing, Serious Fun over three days and eight races on Biscayne Bay. With seven countries and 31 boats, it remains one of the premier Snipe events. Friday's forecast was for 15-18 knots of NE breeze, but it never built to anything over 14 knots and the shifts provided plenty of opportunity for gains and losses on the four leg windward leewards. Ernesto Rodriguez/Kathleen Tocke won all three races, so the battle was for second overall with the points tight behind them. (This theme would continue for the next two days.)

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.
