Steve Orsini takes 2nd at Caribbean NOOD Regatta

 

Santana 20 sailor Steve Orsini took second at the 2008 Sperry Top-Sider NOOD series in the British Virgin Islands.

 

Orsini qualified as one of the seven skippers for the Caribbean regatta by being named the overall winner of the Seattle NOOD last May.  Orsini won the invitation to Caribbean on a tiebreaker after an extremely competitive regatta that saw six of nine Santana 20 teams take first in one or more of the ten races.  The Caribbean series was a bit more of a laid back event, sailed in Sunsail 39s with main and jib only, but there was still plenty of good rivalry and good company.
