AYC Harbor Regatta – October 7

Jack Detweiler reports:

After some sign-up confusion as to whether we were doing the Distance Race or the Harbor Regatta that day, we finally got it sorted out and 4 of us(Magic, Caroline, Skimmer and Halcyon) competed in 3 great races with a southerly breeze of 10-15 kts. With this good and steady wind from 180 degrees, the AYC race committee sent us on a 4 leg windward/leeward course with a .5 mile weather leg for the first two races and a 6 leg windward/leeward course for the last race. It was a really fun day on the water that was wrapped up in a couple of hours. Skimmer finished first overall and Caroline second.

Complete race results are as follows:

Boat Skipper 1 2 3 Total
Skimmer Jack & Marti Detweiler 1 1 1 3 1
Caroline Kevin McNeil 3 2 2 7 2
Magic Jonah Seiger 2 3 4 9 3
Halcyon Jason Goscha 4 4 3 11 4
