With nearly 70 boats on the line, the Star class was likely the most competitive at Bacardi Miami Race Week. Doyle One Design is very excited to have had sails on the winning boat.
Mark Mendelblatt and Magnus Liljedahl won the Star class. It was Mark’s third time winning the event in his hometown as a skipper and Magnus’s sixth time winning as a crew. They were excited with their win, despite a lack of breeze and a general recall barring racing on the last day. They managed to beat Xavier Rohart and Pierre-Alexis Ponsot, who are leading the Star Sailors League ranking. Mark was using Doyle’s M14+ Main, most days the J6R jib and two of the days, the J8C jib. He did not buy a new set for Bacardi, but instead used the same set that won him the Star Sailors League 2016 Finals in Nassau, Bahamas.
