The Florida State Championship 2017, hosted by the Biscayne Bay Yacht Club, kicked off with two light wind races, where balancing the shift with the next bit of pressure was key. It looked like a simpler third race was in store as it briefly picked up to 10 knots, but there is nothing simple about 43 Etchells converging on a windward mark at the same time. Despite multiple attempts at a start the wind failed to ever make a sustained appearance so unfortunately there was no action on the final day. Saskia Clark caught up with some of the top Etchells sailors including, Andrew 'Dog' Palfry, Jud Smith, Shannon Bush, Steve Benjamin, Luis Doreste and Louisa Chafee.
