The 2013 Audi Melges 20 Miami Winter Series, hosted by Coconut Grove Sailing Club (CGSC), named Marc Hollerbach aboard Fu with tactician Jonathan McKee and crew member Ben Allen overall champion for Event No. 2 of the series. Hollerbach, a former International Class Chairman, had a great weekend in Miami finishing day one second overall. On day two, Fu finished fifth in race four. His final race of the day was discarded, ultimately knocking off overnight leader Paul Reilly on Red Sky Sailing Team by one point who finished second overall respectively followed by Richard Davies' Section 16 in third.

Race one of the day and four in the series, went to Mark Plaxton's Intac. Plaxton had a great start and lead rounding the first mark. Plaxton was able to build momentum extending to gain a huge win with major separation from the rest of the fleet. Tony Tabb's Elevation Racing punched the line for a great start and was able to get out early finishing second. Rob Wilber's Cinghiale was in the middle of the fleet for the majority of the race but was able to find a good line downwind and land a third place finish.
