Nacra 17 at Miami OCR: Newberry-Casey, a step above

The info I have beyond results is that Sarah Newberry & John Casey are dominating the fleet in Miami. They should given their level on the F18 and past experience, but a great performance though racing together now.
In 2nd and 3rd place, the future of US racing, Matthew Whitehead with Sarah Streater at the helm, and Taylor Reiss helming for Sarah Lihan (470 Olympian). Matthew and Taylor are two super talented youth that will bring the US team many trophies in the future and will push Sarah and John in the selection to Rio.
Enrique Figueroa, Olympic sailor for years and we can say by now a legend and main responsible for decisions at Santander, struggling a little with his crew adapting from the H16. Image Miami OCR
