BACARDI SAILING WEEK RECAP
Bacardi Sailing Week is a wrap in Miami, Florida! Onsite support from North Sails Regatta Services included pre-event practice days and post-racing debriefs for select fleets. The event kicked off early for J70 and Melges 24 sailors who joined in practice starts and races run by North Sails for all competitors. This was a great way for sailors to warm up before sailing the event, especially those that were new to the fleet.
Competitors that had the opportunity prior to the start of the regatta to practice had the upper hand when it came time to race. North Sails Regatta Services team was on the water to take photos, give pointers, and provide constructive feedback for sailors.
Fleets had post-racing debriefs that allowed competitors to view photos and have an open discussion with onsite class experts. Zeke Horowitz (Viper 640), Tim Healy (J70), Ched Proctor (VX ONE) and Brian Hayes (Flying Tiger) all gave great feedback and provided insights. Talking about the racing after spending the day on the water is a great way to wind down and recognize things that can be improved within each team. The debriefings were quite informative and motivational, which was not only helpful but also was received well amongst the fleet.
Congratulations to our clients for sailing well over the course of the event, hanging in there when conditions got light and tricky, and motivating each other to keep working hard to improve their overall results!
