Premiere Racing is pleased to invite Melges 24 sailors to Acura Miami Race Week 2005. The Southern Ocean Racing Conference – known to racing sailors around the world as “SORC” has found a new life with Peter Craig and his Premiere Racing organization. The Marblehead, Mass based company has built Key West Race Week into the top annual keel boat event in North America and one of the elite race weeks on the international racing calendar.
“Miami Beach is a popular venue and will be great for our class. Key West Race Week presented some serious logistical challenges for the Melges 24 class which Premiere Racing resolved, enabling us to have a 60-boat fleet every year – I’m confident they can do the same in Miami,” said Harry Melges.
“There are some obvious synergies with our Key West event,” said Craig. “Premiere Racing will capitalize on these as we turn our immediate attention to the critical issues boat and class logistics and professional race management.
“Two of the very best Principal Race Officers in the business, Dave Brennan and Ken Legler, will ensure the race committee work is up to our Key West Race Week standards.”
The Melges 24s will race on the Biscayne Bay course over three days, March 11–13. The new Shake-A-Leg sailing facility in Coconut Grove will be the host site for racing on the bay. The Miami Beach Marina is the host site for the ocean divisions. To further ensure that the logistics are simple and the experience is enjoyable for all, the Friday and Saturday post-race parties will be held at both sites.
Excellent racing conditions in Biscayne Bay and South Beach nightlife are a winning combination. Add improved logistics and top-notch race management the inaugural Miami Race Week is a not to be missed event.
