Lauderdale to Palm Beach (Munroe)
Sailfish Club of Florida | Fort Lauderdale to Palm Beach, FL | Dec 07, 2012 | SRM VII (Swan 601)
8th (out of 35)
(out of 12)
SRM VII (Swan 601) raced in IRC 1 with boats ranging from "Bella Mente" and "Shockwave" to a Swan 42 and J/44. The class also included two new HPR 40s, and another Swan 601 "Chessie Racing". The Race started with 9-12 knots from the SE, then moved South and lightened substantially. The slower, smaller boats behind brought in breeze with them. Results on correct time ended up being in reserse size order with the biggest, fastest boats performing worse. Tough we took an 8th, we beat the other Swan 601 who stayed close with us most of the race, and we stayed boat for boat with the two HPR 40s, beating one across the line. We also corrected out ahead of "Bella Mente" and "Shockwave".
