SORC Islands in the Stream Series #2

Published on December 6th, 2020

The second event of the 2020-21 SORC Islands in the Stream Series on December 5 was a revised course when it was deemed the traditional Wirth M Munroe Palm Beach Race course could not be held due to COVID-19 regulations. Instead, a course from Fort Lauderdale to Palm Beach attracted 15 teams in ORC, won overall by Chris Lewis’ J/44 Kenai, and three multihulls won by Jason Carroll’s MOD70 Argo.
