*The breeze was on this weekend and the saturday group enjoyed a great sail to Christmas Cove. Ask your sailor if they sailed the Hobie or the 420?
*In Charleston, 7 sailors from the Antilles team (Thomas Walden, Sam Morrell, Colin Brego, Reid McHenry, Graceann Nicolosi, Amanda Engeman and Paige Clark) battled some tough conditions and continued to put up solid results. Saturday was light and shifty then, on Sunday, it was blowing 20! The team had a great opportunity to compete against some tough competition too.

*In Argentina, the 49er and 49erFX South American Championship is wrapping up today. Mimi Roller and Agustina Barbuto are killing it in the 49erFX sitting in tenth headed in to the medal round.

*Back at home, the Opti Race team hosted a wonderful fundraiser on Saturday evening. Many thanks to everyone that came out in the rain! This is a wonderful example of our great community. We are incredible grateful to Siranusa for the use of their beautiful club house!
