Warm Temps & Big Breeze for Hangover Bowl

Linda Ambrose, Regatta Manager

     


January 1 greeted sailors and the Race Committee with a warm and windy welcome to the New Year. Balmy (for January in the Mid-Atlantic) temps in the low to mid 50s made for a very comfortable boat prep for sailors before attending the 12:15 skippers meeting at the Clubhouse. 42 teams were on the line in separate one design and handicapped classes, and only one OCS was recorded at the start as boats sailed between a mark tied to a mooring ball in the harbor and the signal boat. The initial forecast of 10-15kts had increased overnight, with competitors waking up to small craft warnings and gusts over 20kts, so it was quite sporty on the starting line! PRO Bobby Frey sent the sailors through the mooring field and out in to the Severn River before returning to cross the finish line between the Clubhouse and Annapolis City Marina. 

A large crowd turned out at the Club for the annual post-Hangover Bowl pizza party and greatly appreciated the staff helping them to kick off AYC’s 2019 race program. Awards for Hangover Bowl will be handed out at the Awards Party and Trophy Presentation for the 2018-2019 Frostbite Series on Sunday, March 24. Hangover Bowl results are posted and photos are available online, courtesy of Wilbur Keyworth.
