The Farr 40 Class and the Storm Trysail Club Race Committee were able to complete a full day of racing on the final day of the 2012 Farr 40 USA Circuit Championship Event #2.

With ESE winds at six to ten miles per hour the class was able to get in the full ten races as detailed in the NOR. The courses were shortened throughout the day, with legs as short as one mile leaving little or no room for mistakes at the starting line.

Boats at the start of Race 8 were very slow off the line, half going right and half choosing the left side, and it was apparent early on that the right side of the course was the place to be. Alberto Rossi's Enfant Terrible sailed a flawless race, with Wolfgang Schaefer's Struntje Light coasting downwind just behind them. John Demourkas' Groovederci paid the price for going left, and finished the race eighth, just after Barking Mad.


Race 9 proved to be just as shifty, but this time the left was favored, and Jim Richardson and his team Barking Mad sailed a near perfect race, finishing first and closing the gap on Enfant Terrible. Struntje Light sailed another impressive race and demonstrated their light air skills by landing themselves another second place finish, just ahead of father and son team Helmut and Evan Jahn on Flash Gordon and Nico Poons' Charisma.

Race 10 belonged to Enfant Terrible who made sailing look easy and winning look good here in sunny South Beach. The race committee wasted no time resetting the weather mark and getting in the final race of the event, with the unpredictability of the standings at hand, the last race could stand to benefit more than one team and alter their standings. With a mere 20 points total and 6 first place finishes, Enfant Terrible is the winner of the Farr 40 USA Circuit Championship Event #2 turning the tables on Barking Mad's Event # 1 win in Key West.

The Farr 40 Class Association would like to thank everyone involved in making this event a huge success, including the eight participating boats from four countries, Storm Trysail Club Race Committee and the panel of judges.
