Frederik @ Miami Farr 40 regatta

Crown Prince Frederik was in Miami, Florida, last week (Thursday March 6 to last Sunday March 9) to participate in one of the scheduled Farr 40 competitions in the run up to this year's World Championship, to be held early this year in Miami in April. For the 2008 Acura West Miami Grand Prix, Jim Richardson led Barking Mad (Newport, R.I.) to victory over a series of 10 races over four days among 28 competitors. Barking Mad had to work right to the end to maintain the lead, clawing back from 25th to 17th in the last race to get a four-point victory over Vincenzo Onorato in Mascalzone Latino (Italy) with Warpath (father and son Fred and Steve Howe, San Diego) in third place. Jim Richrdson is in a good position for the World Championship in Miami in mid-April after his win, and will be a worthy challenger to Vincent Onorato who is world champion from the past two World Championships. Crown Prince Frederik's boat Nanoq finished the regatta in 11th spot.

Is it true that Frederik lost his wedding ring while diving in Miami?
