It’s good to be back in Sarasota! Hats off to the team at Sarasota Sailing Squadron for creating a safe environment for us to be able to race in.
Saturday’s heavy breeze outlasted the fleet and only one challenging race was completed before RC called racing for the day. Sunday’s opposite forecast allowed 7 races to be sailed in a light 5-9kts. The fleet rose to the challenge and with a total of 8 races over the weekend, Chris Alexander, Madeline Gill, & Steven Holm took the top spot!
Off the water, it was nice to see VX sailors back together again in a COVID safe environment, swapping quarantine stories and talking sailing. The biggest thank you to our amazing fleet who was eager to get back racing and to make this a safe event. An additional thank you to our Race Committee, powered by a great group of volunteers, Sail22, Marksetbot, and Sarasota Sailing Squadron. We can’t wait to see everyone at Winter Series 2 February 13-14!
