Let me start this off by giving a background on Berlin Yacht Club. We started single-handed racing 6 years ago with the idea of allowing people to show up with whatever they owned as long as you single-hand. We have seen a huge success in this program with us scoring Portsmouth, doing a single start and short windward/leeward races.

The event kicked off Tuesday, February 22nd with the customary Nest Key Race and Rum Rendezvous. Breeze was up for the day, blowing in the high teens out of a southeasterly direction. This provided an exhilarating downwind run out to Nest Key.
