Breeze on at the 2019 VX One Midwinter Championship



167, 187 and 222 surfing downwind in race 3

25 boats competed in the 2019 VX One Midwinter Championship hosted by Sarasota Sailing Squadron in Sarasota, FL. Saturday saw big breeze with the wind consistent in the low 20s with a few gusts over 30. The VXs showed what they were built to do by surfing around the course at speeds over 20 knots. By Sunday, the breeze was gusting close to 40 which kept the boats at the dock. Monday was light and shifty as a result of the departing front which made for tricky conditions. The boats that were able to connect the pressure dots came out on top. At the end of the weekend it was Chris Alexander’s Counterproductive (USA 276) who took the top spot.
