Write-Up

Florida State Championship - US Sailing Center, Jensen Beach, Florida, USA, Feb 1/2nd
 
Thanks to Marc Jacobi for his summary report;
 
A bit chilly on Saturday, but gorgeous Sunday, and champagne sailing both days at the 2020 Florida State Championship!

I was struck by the diversity of sailors racing in this event. We had a 14 year old and people in their 70s. Weights ranged from 93 to 250 lbs. Everyone had fun though, in breeze that ranged from 15 or so down to about 6 knots.

Racing was generally tight, with many places being decided by only seconds on handicap. Phil Myerson, sailing his brand new boat, steadily chipped away, scoring three 3rd place finishes in the last 3 races to land in 4th Overall, ahead of Florida local Bob Patterson. Eric Aker held off the hard-charging Phil by one point to claim third. Hank Saurage came on strong in the lighter winds on Saturday to claim two first places, but couldn't quite overcome your scribe's pace in the stronger breezes.
 
 
Next weekend the fleet heads north to Cape Canaveral for the RS Aero North American Midwinters, where a special treat of spectating a rocket launch awaits after racing on Sunday!
