The popular M32 Series is set to return to the blue-water shores of Miami, Florida in a four-event winter Series from January to April 2017 organised by Aston Harald Sports. M32 owners and professional teams from around the world are invited to compete in the Miami series with the largest ever M32 fleet expected to gather on Biscayne Bay.

This will be the third time that the M32 class holds its winter series in Miami and the class could not be happier to be back. "The Key Biscayne bay provides for perfect racing conditions and the race area gives the fast catamarans perfect room to stretch their legs," commented M32 Class President Mattias Dahlström; "Not only is Miami a centre for world sailing with fantastic regattas in great weather conditions during the winter, it is also a favourite for our teams with a booming social life, great surroundings and a very relaxed atmosphere."

The M32 Winter Series will feature four separate 3-day regattas starting in January and ending in April. Points will be accumulated over the Series with the now infamous trophy, the 'Rooster', making its comeback for the overall winner. The current defender of the M32 Miami Winter Series is American team US One skippered by Miami resident and former Match Racing World Champion Taylor Canfield.

As James Pleasance, M32 North America Director explains, competition for the 2017 Miami Winter Series is expected to be very high "Just in the last year, we have visited several venues across North America with the M32's in Newport, Chicago, Harbor Springs, Minnesota, and San Francisco and Long Beach to come this fall. With the fleet now growing across North America, and even with some of our European owners hoping to come to Miami, we know it will be a great series in Miami with an amazing atmosphere."
