Carkeek 40 Decision leads Inaugural Islands in the Stream Series
Published on December 14th, 2015
Steven Murray’s Carkeek 40 Decision holds a four-point edge atop the standings at the mid-point of the Inaugural Islands in the Stream Series, a four-event series organized by SORC.
Decision swept the top of the standings for both the Nassau Cup Ocean Race and the Wirth M. Munroe Palm Beach Race. Placing third in both races has Jim Hightower’s King 40 Hot Ticket in second place for the series, with two races remaining. The boats with finishes in both races are listed above. However, boats who finished only one of the first two races can still get scored for the series by completing the next two races.
The Fort Lauderdale to Key West Race in January is next, and the pace of entries indicates that it could be a very large and competitive fleet for the trip down to Key West.
The series wraps up in February, with the Inaugural Miami to Havana Race on February 10, 2016, hosted by Coral Reef Yacht Club. Entries are pouring in for the final race of the series, with the right to be the first overall winner of the series at stake, not to mention the change to be the original course record holder. Big boat dockage, for boats whose draft does not allow them to stay in Marina Hemingway, will be available in Havana Harbor.
Any boat who completed either the Nassau Cup or Wirth M. Munroe Race can still complete the series. Details.
