US 2.4 Meter Feb 2021 Wrap up- Canada Lowers the Boom

Feb 26,2021 – Port Charlotte FL 
Cream rises to the top. Talent will eventually reveal itself. Bruce Millar, a Canadian Paralympics sailor  has been working with Edge Sailing on a new jib boom and jib configuration. This month it seemed to hit a new level. Bruce took his modified 2.4 meter with a jib boom out and won the Edge Midwinters.  His scoreline was impressive, he threw out a second place finish.
The event had a range of conditions from light and lumpy to flat and gusty. The jib boom performed well in all conditions allowing “no touch” tacks and lightning fast jibes.
