After five long days in the sun at the Miami Strictly Sail boat show it was time to go sailing! Since it was Open Sailings first time in Miami there was a lot of buzz around the Open 5.70 and Open 6.50. With one Open 5.70 sold at the show and a long line of people eager to go for a sail Open Sailing were happy to oblige. Based out of the Shake-A-Leg sailing center in Coconut Grove the Open 5.70 was on the water doing demos for 4 straight days. The conditions in Biscayne Bay were ideal – warm blue water, minimal chop, and plenty of wind! Everyone returned the dock with a huge smile on their face after an exciting downwind run where we often saw speeds of 12 knots and above. Since the boat and the bay go together so well we’re optimistic that the Open 5.70 fleet in Miami will grow quickly.
