2014 EFG International Star Winter Series-Levin Memorial Regatta-Day One

Like Colin Kaepernick in the frozen Midwest last week, Sailor Chick of the Week Laura Beigel (Annapolis, MD) shows off her guns despite a chilly and wet Saturday at Star Winter Series event number 3.  Beigel, along with her aunt and longtime Star skipper/Class Exec Barbara Vosbury-Beigel pulled a nice midfleet finish of 14/22 on the weekend despite tipping the scales at about half the weight of most of the fleet.  One-legged Brazilian badass Lars Grael/Sam Goncalves finally knocked Augie Diaz off the top spot in a regatta, but only on a tie-break; Augie continues to dominate the Series as the biggest event - the 26-boat, 8-nation, world champ and medal-filled Midwinters kicks off on Thursday.  Hit up the Series Facebook Page for event reporting from our boy Clean, with more photos like this one from Meredith Block.

Nearly 50 teams participated in the inaugural Star Winter Series (SWS) Presented by EFG International  last year, won by Augie Diaz and Arnis Baltins.  The Miami-based series was such a success that both its Event Director and Presenting Sponsor are back, with more excitement and more action planned for the 2013-14 season.  Let’s take it over to that Director, our old Anarchist friend Stu Hebb.

“After wallowing around in ultra-light air at the San Diego Worlds, every Star sailor I know is pumped up for the amazing conditions we get in Biscayne Bay, week in and week out,” said Hebb. “Over the five events of last years SWS – 12 days of racing – we lost just half of one morning to light air, with the rest being perfection; 8 knots to 18 knots, 75-85 degrees; any questions?  Anyone with a Star, or thinking about getting a Star, we’ve made the decision really easy for you:  Get your boat down here before the first event in November and you’ll have the time of your life.”

Hebb says interest in the 2013-14 Series has surprised even him, with multiple teams from California and New England making their way to Coconut Grove next month to join the already-established fleet, as well as committed entries from Germany, Brazil, and several other nations.  As everyone is rediscovering, Miami has become the new “place to be” for winter sailing in this hemisphere.  Here’s the schedule:  Get registered!  Meredith Block photo.

Sometimes just getting on the water is enough to stand out, and as the only female Worlds helmsman in a class that’s regarded as one of the most traditional of all, College of Charleston senior Laura Beigel does exactly that.  She’s lying in 54th position in a tough, light air Star Worlds fleet with dad Read, and we wish her luck.  She’s not the only sailor chick at the Worlds either, but she’s the only driver and we dig it!  Photo credit Marc Rouiller/StarWorlds2013.
