5. Alex Pline & Lexi Pline, 31

Report by Carol Cronin

Despite light enough air that we only touched the hiking straps in tacks, the 20 boats that signed up for the 2017 Comodoro Rasco were not disappointed. For one thing, we all got sailing lessons from Raul Rios/Mac Agnese, who won the five race, no throwout regatta with three seconds on Saturday and two firsts on Sunday. Given the light spotty breeze that confused even the locals, it was a very impressive display of both consistency and boat speed in difficult conditions.

Boomerang Regatta

Wednesday, 01 February 2017 19:04

Fort Lauderdale, January 28-29, 2017

by Peter Commette

The Lauderdale Yacht Club regatta, named "Boomerang" because of its unique course layout for the inland Opti fleets, has been a staple in Florida for decades. This year, Snipes were added to the regatta's outside, ocean course, joining the Lasers and 420's. The late addition of the Snipes made for a small but extremely competitive fleet.
