Offering a little bit of everything, the 2016 Orange Bowl Regatta at Miami’s Coral Reef Yacht Club was a great success for sailors on and off the water! The conditions covered the spectrum, beginning with two days of steady breeze and warm Miami temperatures. The winds moved out on day three and racing was eventually abandoned. The final day of racing saw the arrival of a cold front and was fully breeze-on, mixing things up for sailors trying to make a final push.

Check out this interactive 360 degree video from the team at Waterlust. It was shot on the final day of the regatta just as the Optis began launching.
