Published on March 20th, 2015
Miami, FL (March 20, 2015) – With finishes of 2-1, young Raul Rios of Puerto Rico with Andrae Guaragna of Miami took a two-point lead over Augie Diaz and Kathleen Tocke of Miami after the first two races of the Don Q Regatta sailed out of then Coconut Grove Sailing Club.
The 49th Don Q Regatta took on a distinctly international flavor for 2015 with sailors from 10 countries competing in southerly breezes approaching 10 knots.
Brazilians Filepe Linhares and Lior Lavi were in third, followed by Argentinians Luis Soubie and Diego Lipszyc, and the local team of Enrique Quintero/Tara Mariani. The US teams of Peter Commette/Jensen McTigh, Ernesto Rodriguez/ Eddie Mintzas, and Carol Cornin/ Kim Courantz were in a dead heat, one point behind Quinteros.
