Trading Places... at the 2010 Florida Masters Mid Week Madness!

(The Two Peters...Peter Seidenberg and Peter Shope)

The Master's Mid Week Madness, held on February 10-11th, drew 44 sailors to the Palm Beach Sailing Club with a good turnout from District 7. Peter Shope of D7 snatched first place beating Ari Barshi of the Dominican Republic by one point...sweet revenge after losing to Ari in a tiebreaker for 2nd place at the recent Caribbean Laser Midwinters.

According to news from Fran Seidenberg, the conditions were great and there was never a lack of wind. On the first day the breeze got over 20 knots and half the fleet switched over to Radials which is the beauty of Master's regattas-you can switch rigs from day to day.

D7 had four finishers in the top 10!
