Avra wins the J120 fleet handily


From Key West, Florida....Avra wins the J120 fleet handily. After tying Carinthia on Wednesday she held out to lead the fleet the rest of the regatta. This is Avra’s first appearance at Key West and owner Petrides pulled out all the stops, bringing America’s Cup and Volvo Ocean Race veteran Chris Larson aboard as tactician. “It’s a huge educational benefit to have quality coaching, a great return for the dollars spent,” Petrides said. “My first priority is that every member of the crew learns something and goes away with a higher level of skill.” Petrides already has a strong crew, having been able to hand-pick among acquaintances from the Long Island Sound region after 30 sailors applied for eight spots. “Everyone is good at their respective position and our teamwork has been spectacular,” said Petrides, adding that none of the crew had ever sailed on the same boat together before. Roger Elliot's Crosswave came in a solid second. For photos of this event click here.
