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.

Biscayne Bay in March: what could be better? 38 teams came to enjoy the hospitality of DonQ Rum, Coconut Grove Sailing Club, and Old Man/Carmen Diaz who have been in charge of this event since it started. With five races over three days in breeze that ranged from 6-20 knots, every team had a chance to shine. And all enjoyed the post-race socializing, fueled by daiquiris and Carmen's famous Cuban dinner on Saturday night.
