Bacardi Miami Sailing Week and Gill Commodore Cup video


Gill Commodore's Cup - 33rd St. Maarten Heineken Regatta by Leighton O'Connor
"Not a bad day for the Gill Commodore's Cup today. 10-12 knots of breeze, 2-3 foot seas, clear skies and lots of turquoise water. I took a couple thousands images and edited them down to neat little video about 4 minutes long. We had a cast of characters on the media boat today. Regatta photographer Bob Griesser, writer Herb McCormick and Roland Fardeau from Voile et Voilers Magazine. Lots of arm chair quarter backing today watching crews getting their feet wet on charter boats. Some pretty messy stuff with kites."

Miami Sailing Week"For the fourth year in a row Miami Sailing Week is offering competitors from a variety of different one-design classes the opportunity to compete during this fun and exciting event on the beautiful waters of Biscayne Bay.   This will be the Star Class 86th consecutive year partnering with Bacardi, a tradition that begun in Cuba then in Miami since 1962 making it this year the 50th anniversary. After only four years, BACARDI Miami Sailing Week has become a world famous event attracting the best national and international sailors. Considered by many one of the top-ten sailing events in the world!   Returning for 2013 and ready to give the best they’ve got are the Viper 640, Melges 20, Melges 24 and J/80’s classes. This year the J/70’s will be joining the group and we look forward to seeing them taking part in their first regatta in South Florida."
