In his first event back since winning the 2017 J24 Worlds, Rossi Milev on Clear Air, won again this time taking the 2019 Midwinter Championship at Davis Island Yacht Club in Tampa, Florida. Also on Clear Air was crew Vince Somoza (boat owner) and Gayle Gray along with Dan Borrer and Mark Goodyear who were part of the World Championship crew.

"It felt great to be back," said Milev. "We didn't have the gears since we haven't sailed for a while, but every day, we got a little better." Although Borrer and Somoza were newcomers to Clear Air, they "clicked from the get-go."

With the racing being held March 1-3, the 25C temperatures and steady breeze in Florida was a welcome change from the sub-zero conditions at home in Canada. Milev and the team aboard Clear Air finished up the 8 race regatta with a total of 23 points.
