Pipe Dream, Dream On win Miami Yacht Club’s Miami-Key Largo Race

The Miami Yacht Club hosted the 59th Miami-Key Largo Race last weekend. Pipe Dream, a Tripp 33 sailboat owned by Oliver Waite, was the first to finish the monohull version of the race. Dream On, a RC30m sailboat owned by Eric Roberts, was first to finish the multihull.

The wind, an invaluable ingredient to sailboat racing, played a big factor during the event. The race began with about seven knots of wind, then the wind died dramatically to almost nothing before finally picking up to about four knots at around 2:41 p.m. when the first finisher crossed the finish line.

In total, 77 sailboats participated in the event.

The club will also host its annual awards ceremony Saturday from 6-8 p.m.
