The Audi Melges 20 Winter Regatta first day of racing in Miami featured three races in light, yet steady 8-10 knots of breeze.

Coming out on top, officially seated first overall is reigning-defending Miami Winter Series Champion Richard Davies on Section 16. Tied with equal points in second is arch rival Michael Kiss on Bacio. John Kilroy's Samba Pa Ti is third, three points further back.


After a brief onland postponement, the thirty-five strong Audi Melges 20 fleet went racing with Russ Lucas on Shimmer taking the first bullet of the day. With the breeze just barely reaching eight knots, Lucas hammered the win with Davies on his heels landing second. Cesar Gomez Neto's Portobello representing Brazil, closed out the top three.

Tony Tabb had a great Race Two with his YOLO Audi Melges 20, assuming an unprecedented lead for the win. Alexis Michas on Midnight Blue proved that his team had speed claiming second, Kilroy was third.


The last and final race saw the breeze pick-up for the start, settle in for the duration and slowly start to diminish for the finish as thunder clouds approached the course area. Alessandro Rombelli's STIG took top honors in Race Three, Kiss came second and Davies finished third.


In the Corinthian division, Canada's Frank McLaughlin's CAN-254 has the all-amateur lead. Lake Geneva's Mike Keefe on Flannel is running second, and John Brown's Blind Squirrel is third.

Racing concludes on Sunday with an awards ceremony immediately following racing at Shake-A-Leg Miami.
