Skunked at Star Midwinters

Published on January 10th, 2020

Miami, FL (January 10, 2020) – After strong winds on the opening day of the Star Midwinter Championship yesterday allowed for only one race, there was no opportunity today as 30 knots kept the fleet onshore. Three races would be attempted tomorrow for the 41 teams.

Racing for the Midwinters continues through January 12, with the winner from January 9-10 to be the Walker Cup, and results from both events to be the final two stages of the 2019-2020 Winter Series.
