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.

...

 

Peter/Connie Commette showed excellent speed to win a tight battle with Ernesto Rodriguez/Kathleen Tocke for second. (Peter and Connie also gave us all a lesson in how to "win" the La Bomba Va contest, when each team has to "drink down" a concoction Old Man Diaz mixed in a large glass jar.) Local and former local David Hernandez/Nikki Bruno never strayed too far to one side or the other, so they were able to capitalize on the irregular shifts and puffs that filled across the course. And Annapolis father/daughter Alex and Lexi Pline also kept their heads out of the boat to round out the top five.

The highlight of the regatta was, as usual, the Saturday night dinner at Old Man and Carmen Diaz’s house. With extra bonus footage this year, even veterans of this memorable evening were treated to some "new" footage of Diaz home movies from the 1950s. Comodoro Rasco and Dr. Inclan made their usual appearances.

Next up is the Midwinter Circuit, which begins this year in Nassau.
