02/25/2010 Update: The morning of the races on the first day brought high winds which delayed the racing.


Practice day was a good warm up to the Midwinters and the afternoon turned out to be great weather. Six sailors got out to enjoy the sea breeze of Key Largo.



Rich Baumann got a great afternoon of kayaking on the bay and enjoyed the blue waters and a great sunset.





n Tuesday was beautiful and the Ohio Force 5 team got a chance to explore John Pennekamp State Park. The weather was perfect to go canoeing and explore the channels through the Mangorves.



The locals don't seem to mind us around them as long as we leave them be.



The mangroves were a great area to fish. the storm from the prior day seemed to push all the fish to deeper waters.
