District 20  Regatta Report

Sat Dec 6th, 2003 through Sun Dec 7th, 2003

Regatta Base

2003 Commodores Cup

 

Normally there would be 18-20 Star boats on Biscayne Bay for the annual Commodore’s Cup regatta, but because U.S. Star teams are gearing up for the Olympic Trials in March and it is too cold in Europe to sail right now, there were 46 boats on the starting line this for this event.

A cold front went through Miami Friday night and not only was it cold for the initial races - 65 degrees, which is cold for Miami - but it was also fairly windy with 18-25 knots from the Northwest. This caused a few breakdowns and carnage in the fleet, with a scattering of broken masts, sail problems and other sorts of casualties.

The final day delivered a milder 10 knots of breeze for the last race of the three race series. After two general recalls, race three got underway but eight boats picked up Black Flags, including Mark Reynolds and the regatta leader, Paul Cayard.
