Cayard Sailing Reports: Coconut Grove, Zagarino Masters
Sunday, February 4, 2018 9:08 AM
32 Stars came to Miami to compete in the annual Zag Masters; a fun tradition that includes father son, father daughter, Master(50+), Grand Masters(60+) and Exhaulted Grand Masters (70+).
Golf on Friday is the precursor to the racing on the weekend; normally two races on Saturday and one on Sunday. Today the breeze was toping 20 knots so with tomorrows forecast down around the 12 knot range, just one race was held on a, mast friendly, double triangle course.
Magnus Liljedahl and I got a rather conservative start and had to clear out soon after crossing the line. Early leaders were Diaz/Prada and Reynolds/Haenel. Mag and I had to fight our way through a bit of traffic but with good speed and a couple lucky shifts, we managed to grab the lead at the first mark. We stretched on pretty much every leg and took the win. Diaz/Prada were second and McCausland/Cheer brought home third.
Tonight we have the Masters dinner which is a well attended scores.
