2015 O'Pen BIC North Americans
The 2015 O'Pen BIC North Americans, hosted by Miami YC, brought fun and excitement to a whole new level. Active courses, required boat handling skills, and tight racing has become the norm at O'Pen BIC championships, but who ever imagined a sailing limbo contest ?! After twelve tight course races, only four points separated the top four places. Again it was Marcos, from Hawaii Kai Boat Club, in first- narrowly edging out team mate Lars von Sydow, and Trent Shaw from Biscayne Bay YC. Kanoa Pick, also from Oahu, took the highly competitive Under 13 division, with Pearl Lattanzi and Makela Pick top females in Open and Under 13 respectively. O'Pen BIC regattas are known for their focus on fun, improvement, and camaraderie. Read More
