Nacra 17, 2018 Miami Skiff Midwinter Regatta: Lange & Carranza 1st


Photo: Santi Lange fb. - Pre event for Miami WC 2018. Santi  Lange (aka "Super Nono" or "Grandpa Juice" a la Ginobili..) & Ceci Carranza won over Ben Saxton & Katie Dabson after 8 races. 3rd overall for 2016 Bronze medalist Thomas Zajac now sailing with Barbara Matz.  The complete Rio podium was present, with Waterhouse & Darmanin finishing in 4th place.

Good to see Grandpa performing in foiling mode, a real challenge for him and Ceci against experienced cat foiling helms like Zajac & Waterhouse.
Lange-Carranza trained here in Buenos Aires along  Arg youth promises Majdaleni-Bosco, but sadly I have some building cat work pending and couldn't go out with the kids as planned.

Bora Gulari & Helena Scutt back into racing, some good results but two dns & a dnf put them back. This event is preparation for coming major regatta Miami WC to be held January 21-28.
