    Bailey White sneaks a win at the US Ronstan Midwinters

    While the North European fleets shiver in drysuits and 5mm wetsuits or are still laid up, over in Florida, the US Ronstan Midwinters took place at Key West.  USACA President Bailey White reports


    The 2016 Ronstan Midwinters at the Upper Keys Sailing Club turned out to be much bigger than we expected and even more fun.  What started with registration just breaking twenty turned into 35 boats as they just kept showing up on Friday.  

    About 15 boats made a week of it and enjoyed flat water, mid teens winds, and warm tropical weather all week.
