Montreal Stars do the Bacardi Cup

Hooweee, now that's a close finish!

Montreal sailors in the Star fleet made the trip to Miami to race in Biscayne Bay's famous Bacardi Cup.

Out of 75 teams competing, including Olympians, America's Cup sailors, and, well... Star sailors, Will Hendershot and Alain Vranderick placed a very respectable 36th, just a little behind Brian Cramer and Bjorn Tyler in 32nd overall.

Congratulations guys!

Another Canadian, Larry Scott, crewed on #58 helmed by American Jock Kolhaus seen above, narrowly nosing over the finish line ahead of Loof/ Ekstrom to win day #2. Hamish Pepper and David Giles won the regatta.
