Positions Shuffle at Star Midwinters

Published on January 7th, 2017

Miami, FL (January 7, 2017) – The third day of the Star Midwinters had three races scheduled but only two races were held today on Biscayne Bay before the wind pipped up ahead of a front that was to hit Miami tonight.

Augie Diaz and Arnis Baltins posted a 6-3 to remain in the lead though positions behind have shuffled. Tomorrow, two or three races could be sailed on the final day but the forecast is for very strong wind.
