Farr 40 USA Circuit Championship Event 2 Miami - Tough and tight

The Farr 40 Class could not have asked for better racing conditions today in Miami Beach for dy 3 of the 2012 Farr 40 USA Circuit Championship Event 2.

Temperatures were in the mid 70's, and sailors zipped around the race course with wind from the ESE at a consistent 12-15 knts. The Storm Trysail Club Race Committee was able to pull off an impressive foure day, quickly starting one action packed race after another.


The competition was tough today and mark roundings were closer than ever, with the Rolex Farr 40 World Championship in Chicago only six months away and the Annapolis Circuit Event #3 taking place on the Chesapeake Bay in May, sailors made few mistakes in an attempt to outrank the competition on the Circuit Leaderboard.

Alberto Rossi's Enfant Terrible and Jim Richardson's Barking Mad seemed to spent the day stealing points from one another from race to race, consistently making great calls and choosing the favored side of the course. While most of the fleet stayed right at the start for the beginning of each race today, the left side of the course downwind undoubtedly paid off for Barking Mad in Race 5 and 6, currently moving them up to a well deserved second place standing overall. With slightly lighter winds today teams never quite reached the 20 knot speed they saw on each run yesterday, but there was certainly no lack of breeze today on the shore of South Beach.

Enfant Terrible took first on both the first and last races of the day, keeping them in first place after two days of racing with only 12 points. Hasip Gencer's Asterisk UNO closed the gap on Struntje Light and Enfant Terrible to pull off a second place finish in Race 7.

The weather mark was quite the hotspot with the first boat and last boat of each of the 4 races sailed today rounding within less than a minute of each other, and plenty of close tacks for the layline. With each entry stacked with the talent of some of the biggest names in the game, tomorrow will be an exciting day for the conclusion of the 2012 Farr 40 USA Circuit Championship Event 2.
