Miami and Biscayne Bay showcased the best day of racing as the iconic racing venue said good-bye to the 500 sailors who competed at the Bacardi Invitational Regatta. A great Easterly breeze of around 10 knots, sun shining warm and wave chop a lot less than the previous days made for a perfect race day. In the J/70 fleet, the winners were the team on Catapult (USA), featuring Joel Ronning, Victor Diaz del Leon, Patrick Wilson and Chris Stoke. They were the most solid and consistent of the fleet with every score inside the top three, after discarding their 11th in race 3. They racked up a 16-point advantage over second-placed Americans onboard Surge with Mark Mendelblatt calling tactics, and in third was Italy’s Calvi Network with Carlo Alberini driving. “This was a very fun team to sail with. We all got along very well,” commented Ronning of Catapult. “This group of people are very good at what they do. We had tremendous fun. We were able to minimize mistakes by keeping the dialogue open, and if there were any issues, they were taken care of right away. It’s a phenomenal event and one of the premier series in the world. It’s very well organized. We love Shake A Leg, we love Bacardi, everybody is so welcoming and we will definitely be coming back.” Full results are available at https://yachtscoring.com/event_results_cumulative.cfm?eID=5889.
