Audi Melges 20 Miami Winter Series - Record fleet for Event No. 2

'Melges 20 fleet in Miami'    JOY /IM20CA©

The Audi Melges 20 fleet is set to reconvene for Event No. 2 of the 2013 Audi Melges 20 Miami Winter Series, hosted by the incredible Coconut Grove Sailing Club (CGSC). On the heels of being awarded ISAF Class status, the International fleet continues to grow exponentially with a record breaking 47 boats on the starting line for the 2-day affair beginning Saturday, February 9 in beautiful Miami, Florida.

The vast majority of the fleet calls the USA home, but Canada is making a huge splash with nine boats anticipating a very high-powered race weekend. 'The Canadian fleet is so fired up about hosting the North Americans', says Canadian fleet captain Rhonda Joyce, owner of Batteries Not Required. 'We want to gain as much big regatta experience as possible before hosting the Audi Melges 20 North American Championship in September.'

Several teams are back to battle for overall honors including Miami Winter Series Event No. 1 Champion Russell Lucas on Shimmer, runner-up and Corinthian Champion Marcus Eagan on Cajun Underwriting, and third place finisher Samba Pa Ti helmed by John Kilroy.

Also up for grabs is the highly-coveted Audi Melges 20 Miami Winter Series title. Already, 39 teams are on the board and as the fleet anticipates the Miami Winter Regatta, and the 2013 Bacardi Miami Sailing Week event, the final number is expected to top 50+ easily. The Series includes the best of all three combined scores from the Miami Winter Series of regattas. View The 2013 Miami Winter Series Ranking.

Registration, practice, regatta preparation and opening ceremonies happen on Friday, February 8, with racing taking place on Saturday and Sunday (five races are scheduled). The social event schedule will be much of the same as Event No. 1 with beer and heavy hors d'oeuvres back onshore at CGSC. Also, back by popular demand is the informative post-race debrief exclusive to the Audi Melges 20 fleet held by Melges USA where corinthians and professionals alike enjoy a fun and open discussion from the day's leaders on their success.
