Tuesday, 17 February 2015 17:26

As many as 111 competitors sailed 23 races in four to twenty four mph winds during Laser Masters Week sailed at the United States Sailing Center Martin County (USSCMC), in Jensen Beach and the Palm Beach Sailing Club in West Palm Beach, Florida.

Participants came from six countries, twenty two states and DC to compete in three regattas - Masters Midwinters, Midweek Madness and Florida Masters  - that comprise Masters Week.  This was a record turnout for the event sending race management scrambling to amend NORs and SIs to accommodate the fleet.  The Masters Midwinters was sailed using a round robin format.  Midweek Madness and Florida Masters separated the competitors into Standard and Radial fleets.  Trapezoid courses were sailed on the Indian River Lagoon for the first two events at USSCMC before moving to PBSC to enjoy two days of ocean sailing on windward leeward courses in the 33nd renewal of the Florida Masters, the oldest Laser Masters Regatta in North America. The level of competition is evident in that forty different participants earned awards during the events. Complete results may be found at the following links:
