The ninth edition of the Mark Sorensen Youth Sailing Championship boasted its largest ever roster of sailors with 155 racers competing at the regatta over the weekend of February 10 and 11th. Sailors, coaches and families from 13 different yacht clubs were represented at this year’s event.
Sailors from Coral Reef Yacht Club took the top prizes in optis as Danny Riano placed first in Green Fleet and Freddy Parkin came away as the overall RWB fleet champion. On Lasers, Lauderdale Yacht Club’s Michael Morely took top honors in the 4.7 fleet while Coconut Grove Sailing Club’s Kevin Merten finished first in Radials.
With nearly 160 youth sailors participating, the Buccaneer Blast Regatta has now become the largest sailing event in all of the Florida Keys! On behalf of the Mark Sorensen Youth Sailing Program, we would like to thank all of the families and sponsors who supported our event this year.
We look forward to seeing you all next year at the 10th Annual Buccaneer Blast Regatta
