Madrigali/Welch take the win at Bacardi!

Congratulations to Jeff Madrigali at the helm of Kevin Welch's Melges 24 Mikey as they are the Bacardi Miami Sailing Week Champions! Also aboard was Ian and Joy Slone, and and Bryn Bochman.

Day two played to Madrigali's favor. As the breeze built to more than 20 knots, he set a pace that second place finisher Nicolo Ardito's Little Wing just could seem to match. The Mikey team came back from a two point deficit to a two point lead to win.
