"Behind the Lens" Part 31 Key West Race Week
Published 07:19 on 7 May 2020
I do miss Key West race week. My first regatta there was 1988, which was only the second time it was held. I think it was the first time the IOR 50s raced there and it was pretty crazy at times.
In the 80's & 90's Key West was regarded as a windy event but over the years it seemed to change to a light to medium. It was extremely popular with the photographers as the water had that magical green Key West look that is still instantly recognised in the pictures today. The sun always shone and there were some great parties and fun times in the bars onshore. January isn't the same without it.
