2017-18 Etchells Biscayne Bay Series

Dear Etchells Sailors:

On behalf of the members and officers of Biscayne Bay Yacht Club and the members and officers of Etchells Fleet 20, it is my pleasure to welcome fellow Etchells sailors, Race Committee volunteers, Judges, friends and family to our Club and Fleet for the 2018 Etchells Biscayne Bay Series. Please enjoy our facilities and hospitality and treat it as though it were your own Club.

Etchells Fleet 20 is one of the most active Etchells fleets in North America. Our members consist of past World Champions and a very active group of Etchells competitors who have traveled North America and the world for major Etchells events.

Our Etchells Series has been one of the major Etchells regatta series since 1994. The quality of both racing and competitors has attracted Etchells sailors from all over the world. We typically have between 50 and 90 boats on the starting line. Our Race Committee team from Biscayne Bay Yacht Club headed by PRO's Dave Brennan and Stuart Childerly is world renown. Warm weather, warm water and good winds welcome you to Miami!

I wish each competitor the best of luck and fair winds. I hope you all enjoy your visit with us both on and off the water.

Welcome and Good Luck!

Jeff Nehms
Fleet 20 Fleet Captain
