Etchells Florida State Championships 2017 – Day 1

The Florida State Championship 2017, hosted by the Biscayne Bay Yacht Club, kicked off with two light wind races, where balancing the shift with the next bit of pressure was key. It looked like a simpler third race was in store as it briefly picked up to 10 knots, but there is nothing simple about 43 Etchells converging on a windward mark at the same time. Steve Benjamin’s Terrapin team sailed a clean day and have a commanding lead on the chasing pack, all of whom will be looking forward to the discard coming into play. Saskia Clark caught up with International PRO Stuart Childerley, Shannon Bush and Steve Benjamin for their reactions from the days racing.
