    It was rough today at the end and for the third time the Nacra 20 FCS foiler won and made it through the surf ok. But the Flying Phantom(3rd place finish)
    wasn't so lucky and capsized resulting in a torn sail and broken mast. They may not be able to continue into Cocoa Beach tomorrow. Another "normal" cat was dismasted about 5 or so miles south of the finish. Nobody was seriously hurt in either dismasting. Watch the Phantom come in starting at 1:14:30. Capsize at 1:16:54 .

    Sheesh, that's why they call the old Hobie 16s and Prindle 16s "Beach Cats" and not the F18s and F20s beach cats... I'm definitely not going to be sailing my F20 onto any beaches. Docks and boat ramps only for it.
