Xavier Ferlet reports from this month’s Midwinters foil event:
I attended the Midwinters in the early 2000s for the first time. At that time, I lived in the UK and it was a treat to be in Florida at this time of year. 18 years have passed since.
I’m glad that the Midwinters have found a new home at the Clearwater Community Sailing Center. There was more to enjoy than the glorious weather. The event provided a great opportunity to race for people of all ages and abilities.
A dedicated team of volunteers helped to make the event successful.
Breakfast, lunch, and dinner were provided at the Sailing Center for all competitors. Having meals overlooking the water is always a privilege, even more so when you’re hungry just after wind foiling! No need to wait in a restaurant. Justin went out of his way to make me feel welcome from the moment I arrived till the moment I left.
