Nacra 17 @Miami Midwinters 2016 for Buhler-Brugger

Photo: Buhler-Brugger FBSkiff & RSX Miami Midwinters was the previous event before ISAF World Cup 2016 which will define last places for Rio 2016. In Nacra 17 Mathias Bulhler & Nathalie Brugger From Switzerland and now coached by Legend Mitch Booth,  won the Worlds warmup regatta over the Danish Viking crews with Norregaard/Viborg & Cenholt/Lubeck in 2nd & 3rd respectively.

Moth Master Borta Gualari & Louisa Chfee scored two bullets. Need to check if the US crew is already defined. Spain will define their representative too , while Ven, Uruguay & Guatemala (Hobie 16 top riders and H16 North Americans Champs Jason Hess & Irene Abascal)  will fight for the Continetal slot as the US has secured theirs.
