Amhas #127, an Akilaria RC3 Class 40 that was completed and commissioned by MYC in 2013 participated in the Miami to Havana, Cuba yacht race in February.
This was the first time the legendary SORC event was held since 1959.
It was a downwind start in light air but by late afternoon the breeze filled in from the East at 20 -25 knots, providing great sailing conditions to Cuba.
Amhas finished second in class and third overall in a fleet of 40 boats.
There was also a coastal race organized by the Havana Yacht Club that sailed along the stunning “Malecon” Havana’s down town waterfront area.
Amhas finished second in the coastal race.
Brian Harris, GM of MYC sailed onboard as navigator and reported that Cuba is a beautiful and fascinating country………like the land that time forgot.
