Trading Places… at the 2010 Florida Masters Mid Week Madness!
The Master’s Mid Week Madness, held on February 10-11th, drew 44 sailors to the Palm Beach Sailing Club with a good turnout from District 7. Peter Shope of D7 snatched first place beating Ari Barshi of the Dominican Republic by one point…sweet revenge after losing to Ari in a tiebreaker for 2nd place at the recent Caribbean Laser Midwinters.
According to news from Fran Seidenberg, the conditions were great and there was never a lack of wind. On the first day the breeze got over 20 knots and half the fleet switched over to Radials which is the beauty of Master’s regattas-you can switch rigs from day to day.
D7 had four finishers in the top 10!
