Mark Mendelblatt and Magnus Liljedahl (USA) are the winners of the Bacardi Cup 2017.
The 90th edition for the prestigious trophy ended in Biscayne Bay with a general recall at 12,58, leaving no time for the Race Committee to start another racing sequence, before the cut-off time.
It’s the 3rd Bacardi Cup of Mark Mendelblatt’s career and the 6th for his crew: “A win is a win, and it feels good even with no racing today” said an enthusiastic Magnus Liljedahl. “It’s so good to win such a prestigious event, I am incredibly happy” added the Coconut Grove based skipper Mendelblatt.
Second spot went to the French duo, Xavier Rohart and Pierre-Alexis Ponsot, who now lead the SSL Ranking, for both Skipper and Crew. George Szabo (USA) and Edoardo Natucci (ITA) are third for the Bacardi Cup, earning valuable points towards the SSL Finals 2017
