Worrell 1000 Day 1

The annual south to north dash up the Atlantic coast via beach catamaran has begun.  This year the 2 person teams are literally all in the same boat- the Inter 20.

The 80.7 mile Leg 1 from Fort Lauderdale to Jensen Beach Florida was a fast one.  As with many other Worrell legs 5 time race winner Randy Smyth came 1st.  2nd by only 42 seconds were Dutchmen Gerard Loos and Mrsucha Heemskerk.  3rd were Brett Dryland and Rod Waterhouse only another 8 seconds back.  At least for 1 days the one design concept has brought close exciting racing.

Smyth's with Mark Strube as crew posted a leg 1 winning time of 4 hours 39 minutes and 5 seconds, for an average speed of 17.20 knots.

The high speeds were not the only new of Leg 1.  A 30 knot squall hit the fleet causing several capsizes and some injuries to crews.

This morning sees leg 2 a 79 mile sail to Coca Beach.
