2009 Midwinters Day 1

First day in clearwater, the wind did not cooperate. After a short wait the twenty five boat fleet embarked on what was to be a long and painful journey. Boats from all over the world came to clearwater yacht club including Italy, Norway, Brazil and sweden. In the first race we were met with 5 to 7 knots of breeze and plenty of sun. Hernand and enrique came out on top with ernesto and peter close behind. After a short postponment the second race began and the wind went from light to none. With much patience ernesto rodriguez found a way to finish first. With too long of a first lap, whether or not the race counted is still a mystery…..many of us are looking foward to better conditions tomorrow but either way the grapefruit drinks are going down smooth!!!!
Cheers from Snipe Midwinters.
