Iain Murray and I placed 7th overall in the historic Bacardi Cup Star class regatta in Miami last week.

Richard Perini’s Evolution won the Farr40 Nationals in a dominant performance last week off Sydney’s Pittwater.

Iain and I are in 6th place with one race to sail at the Bacardi Cup in the Star Class in Miami Florida. Top 5 would be a reasonable result in this 90 boat fleet. Results can be found through www.starclass.org
Here is a picture of Iain just about to get to work on a big repair in the bow before the regatta begun. Also pictured is our guest coach, Mike Fletcher. More about Fletch later though. Time for the the rack now.
