2009 ACURA Miami Grand Prix

World Class Programs Ready For 2009 ACURA Miami Grand Prix
by Joy
Miami Beach, Fla – Top tier programs and class champions are preparing for battle in the ocean waters off South Beach. The Acura Miami Grand Prix scratch sheet has an impressive 44 boat turnout, loaded with international talent.

The Melges 32s are 21 boats strong and amongst them is Mike Carroll and Marty Kullman’s Melges 32 New Wave — defending Acura Grand Prix Champions. This prestigious designation is awarded to the boats with the lowest combined cumulative points for both Acura Key West and the Acura Miami Grand Prix. This year the Melges 32 Gold Cup results are included in that class’s scores.

Racing in the ocean off South Beach is always terrific and the rematches from Key West are quite exciting. It’s great to see such a strong turnout and so many programs taking advantage of Premiere Racing’s second south Florida event.

Racing begins on March 5. Four race days with as many as ten races are scheduled. Event details, entries, past results and current Acura Grand Prix standing will be available online at
