Wow! Over 50 of the 60+ competitors registered for the 2018 Flying Scot Midwinters sailed out today for the practice race. With a southwesterly wind blowing 5-8, our PRO Fairlie Brinkley and team were able to get in a 4-leg windward-leeward race. The mark roundings were tight, the fleet was pretty close. In the end Zeke and Jay Horowitz led the way to the finish with the rest of us not too far behind. The Charlie Fowler trophy for the top 3 finishers in a fleet goes to Sarasota Sailing Squadrons own fleet 36, WIth Zeke Horowitz 1st, Bob Twinem 2nd and Ro Pletsch 3rd.   Next up is a chalk talk featuring today;s leaders followed by the welcome party and skipper's meeting. Thanks to Sarasota Sailing Squadron for a great day on the water - especially for the beautiful sunny 80-degree day. Can't wait for the rest of the week.   Photos can be seen at http://ImageEvent.com/ericbussell/midwinters2018sunday
