2012 Melges 32 Gold Cup
Ft. Lauderdale is the scene yet again for the final regatta of the 2012 season. Some new faces on the rail and a return of an old face….er…I mean familiar face will offer up some new challenges but the past 3 days have been very productive. Now its time to put in the real work. Forecast is for BIG breeze, which means BIG waves and BIG ear-to-ear grins while we rip downwind. Those grins do however turn to grimaces on the upwind legs as we fall off the backsides of the massive rollers we encounter, but we were told the beats would only be a mile long, stoked to hear that for sure, and the downwinds will be well worth it.
14 boats on the line, 4 Italians, a Brit, a Russkie, and Inga from Sweden.
Should be an amazing ride. Will we be drinking Veuve out of a Gold Cup on Sunday? Gonna have to earn that.
