Final Sail 2021 returned to the docks of Miami Beach Marina and the tournament certainly lived up to the hype. A total of 402 releases across a 41 boat fleet, proved the bite to be red hot and the competition to be high.
Two teams would prevail and emerge as champions. Bar South released 3 sailfish on Day 1, but a surge on Day 2 with 11 releases sent them over the top and secured them 1st Place Quest for the Crest 2020 and that second jacket they’ve been eyeing is finally theirs! Captain Raul Gonzales was named Top Captain of the 2020 series as well.
Showtime also had a comeback of their own. Captain Nick Carullo and his squad finished in 13th place on Day 1, which only increased the lead that Native Son held on them heading into Final Sail. Their chances of winning their second jacket seemed to be far from their reach. But the bite was even hotter on Saturday and Showtime released 15 sailfish for a grand total of 21 releases that catapulted them into a second place finish in Final Sail. Their championship finish was enough to overcome Native Son and finish 1st Place in the Quest for the Crest 2021 and win their second burgundy jacket together with a $115,550 payout!
