Shope, Fillion Share Green Jacket at Florida Masters PDF Print E-mail
Saturday, 20 February 2016 00:28

Seventy sailors, 47 in Standard and 23 in Radial Fleets, enjoyed two fantastic days of ocean sailing off Lake Worth inlet to wrap up Laser Masters Week at the Florida Masters.

Palm Beach Sailing Club was a great host for the event, including finally giving the competitors and guests a hint of Florida weather.  Saturday provided challenging conditions in a Northwesterly to Northerly  10 to 15mph breeze with lots of holes, shifts and current.  The fleet quickly figured out that going left was a good thing.   Saturday evening PBSC continued their white tablecloth gourmet dinner tradition as the group including race management hoped the Sunday 25 knot forecast would tone down a little to ensure good sailing conditions.  Sunday’s easterly in the mid-teens range gave the sailors another day of fun sailing in good waves, even accompanied by dolphins giving surfing instructions on the runs!


Peter Shope led the Standard Fleet and Jean-Yves Fillion captured the Radial Fleet  title.  They both shared the coveted Green Jacket presented annually to the regatta winner.  All four age groups enjoyed friendly and close competition with the top three finishers getting a good bottle of Castelli wine.  During Masters Week, over 100 sailors participated in one or more of the three events.
