Key West, Florida Keys — There was plenty of final day drama at Quantum Key West 2014 as the winners of several classes were determined during the last race. And conditions could not have been better for those winner-take-all scenarios with the southernmost point of the United States delivering the strongest winds of the regatta.
North-northeasterly breezes in the 18-24 knot range made for some spectacular racing on all three courses and enabled all 10 classes to complete 10 races for the five-day event.

“You can sail a lot of places in the world but there are only a few spots that are really an experience. This is a fun town, and you can’t find a better combination than this. In the end, we’re still doing this for fun, and there’s something for everybody at Key West.” — Skipper of Daring, Swan 42
“To me, this is the premier event in North America. Of all the regattas we’ve won over the years, this one stands out because of the history and tradition. It means a lot to be able to say you won Key West.” — Skipper of Decision, Carkeek 40
