Miami Pro Am 2009

Racing started on Saturday with light and extremely shifty winds. The course had to be adjusted multiple times and it never was quite right, but the Kona crowd never complained much.

Four races were completed in the afternoon and the very competitive group took it to the protest committee for one race. Bruce “the Legend” Matlack lost out to Mike “Kona Man” Rayl and it cost him dearly.

Sunday looked like there was a chance for the Formula sailors to get a few races in, but they did not make it out to the course before the wind backed off.

One race was attempted, but the wind fizzled before half the fleet made it to the windward mark. Thanks to Fernando and Martin, we did get a peek at the new Patrick Diethelm Formula board though. The Movie Star was out there showing off his new Starboard and 2010 KA as well.

Inlet To Inlet Distante Race

The race is in it's 7th year and the 4th year on the National Race Tour of US Windsurfing as the first race of 2009 as well as the US Windsurfing SE Series.

The i to i, (Inlet to Inlet Distance Race), will take place in Fort Lauderdale on South Beach either Saturday, December 5th, or Sunday, December 6th.

The day and race course will be determined according to the prevailing weather conditions, but the preferred course will be Fort Lauderdale South Beach Park to Port Everglades Inlet to the Hillsboro Inlet and back to South Beach Park.

The non-race day will be practice and tuning and won't score towards the event and is optional.

It's about 11.5 miles from inlet to inlet. Depending on the wind direction and strength it could take as little as an hour or quite a bit longer! The marks are far enough offshore that the race can and will be run if winds are offshore. As this is a bit of distance to cover and the possibility of breakdown, fatigue, or injury exists, combined with potential offshore winds, it is strongly encouraged that you carry a cell phone for emergency use.

On behalf of the Alex’s Bluewater Foundation, we are proud to announce the 2010 Alex Caviglia Bluewater Classic (ACBC), from Saturday, January 16 to Monday, January 18, 2010 in Miami, Florida.

In its fourth year, the ACBC is one of the top regattas in the country bringing together windsurfers, keelboaters and awesome dinghy racers from all over the country and around the globe! 

Biscayne Bay will be alive with racing this winter so be sure not to miss the action! The following classes are invited to participate in the event:

Proceeds from the regatta will benefit Alex’s Bluewater Foundation and Shake-A-Leg Miami, two local organizations dedicated to improving the lives of people with disabilities specifically focusing on those stricken with traumatic brain injuries. 

Sadly, in November of 2004 we lost Alex Caviglia, a consummated kite-boarder and windsurfer, champion multi-class sailor, soccer coach, business and family man. To celebrate his memory, we take great pleasure in inviting you to be a part of this fundraising regatta and to discover the social benefits of inclusive sailing.
