Paul Cayard and Magnus Liljedahl

2015 Bob Levin Memorial

 

Sailed at Coconut Grove, Florida, USA. Report by Paul Cayard

Day One:
Yesterday morning in Ross, California there was ice on the lawn. At midnight I walked onto the back deck of Bob Norton’s Hatteras 46 at the Coral Reef Yacht Club in 80 degrees and humidity. That’s why people go to Florida in the winter!

Today, the Star Class raced for the Bob Levin Memorial Trophy on Biscayne Bay. The breeze was up….from the south east. The chop was up as is normal on this very shallow bay when there is wind. Sailing a Star in 15 knots and chop is about as hard a work out as you get in the Star. It’s the top of the full power range.

Magnus Liljedahl and I had a very good day with scores of; 2, 2, 4 to grab the lead after day 1. That looks pretty consistent but there were plenty of ups and downs for us. The chop made downwind technique very important. You could get in a groove and pass quite a few boats.

Lars Grael (BRA) won 2 of the races and Luke Lawrence and Josh Revkin won the middle race.

Two races are scheduled for Sunday and the breeze is forecast to be about the same as today; 15 knots from the southeast.

Day Twp:
Two races were held today on Biscayne Bay for the Star class. Classic conditions returned with 8-12 knot southeasterly and 80 temps.

Magnus and I had a fantastic day with a 2, 1 to win the Bob Levin Memorial Trophy.

Luke Lawrence sailed well to win the first race of the day just 2 boat lengths in front of us.

In the second race Magnus and I hit the start line going fast and led the whole way building a huge lead by the finish.

Lars Grael and Arthur Anosov we close to the front in both races.
