The Sarasota Sailing Squadron’s VX One Design Winter Series is comprised of three regattas. The first regatta was held November 21 -23 in blustery conditions. Breeze was 15 knots plus for the first two days and gusting into the high 20’s on Sunday, the 23rd. A total of 8 races were held and 22 boats were at the starting line.

The Norris family, Michael, Christina and Anthony, were on Flash Rider and Sam, Josh and Louis Padnos were on 188. Consistency and skill paid off with both teams getting to the podium after three hard days of racing.

Racing was tight at the top as Flash Rider placed first with 19 points, Animal, at 21 points, squeezed out a second over the Padnos entry with 22 points giving them a third.

Congratulations Norris and Padnos families on a great way to kick off the winter racing season.
