69F Sailing: US Select Series 3 in Miami, Florida
69F America winter sailing season is about to start with Miami's US Select Series 3. Five teams from three different countries begin racing today, December 9th until Sunday 11th on the beautiful waters of Biscayne Bay, a true winter sailing paradise. In Miami this week the Antigua Rum Runners, winners of US Select Series 2 in Pensacola, the Team from Canada, coached by Tyler Bjorn. US Olympic sailor Charly Ogletree joined Phil Muller to coach three American Magic teams, as they continue training the Women and Youth sailors on their AC 40 Campaign. For this event the three NYYC American Magic teams were named as former US Americas cup winners, Enterprise, Rainbow and Ranger.
The teams have been training for the past two days, as it is custom for the 69F events, and from today the schedule includes up to six races per day before crowning the winner of the last Select Series of 2022.
"Yesterday the fleet was training with the best conditions Biscayne Bay has to offer, a steady 12 Knots wind from the NE with some 15 knots gusts," says 69F America CEO, Alex Sastre. "The winners of Series 2, the Antigua Rum Runners helmed by Rocco Falcone, were flying all over the bay practicing maneuvers, while the Canadian team was training a new team of 69F sailors. US Olympic sailor Charly Ogletree joined Phil Muller to coach the three American Magic teams, as they continue training the Women and Youth sailors on their AC 40 Campaign".
