Shifty Conditions for Spring Harbor Competitors

Linda Ambrose, Regatta Manager

               


The weather mark boat RC volunteers, who served as both the windward and leeward mark teams, had their work cut out for them on Saturday with breeze anywhere from 5-10kts and oscillating between 345 to 090 degrees throughout the day. The team set (and reset) an unprecedented 19 marks to provide a fair course to the sailor. At one point the team was out of marks, so the M flag was displayed on the RC boat to act as the finish mark. A big thanks to Sandy Grosvenor, Mark Murphy, and Carl Mott for their efforts to “get it right” for the competitors. P/C Gordon, who was PRO for the event, did an amazing job on overall course management in shifty conditions, and by the end of the day three races were posted on the Official Notice Board. Both the Harbor 20 and Alerion 28 classes had a great turnout with 20 entries for the H20s and seven for the Alerion 28 class, who joined AYC weekend regattas a few years ago.

               

The top three positions in the Harbor 20 class were separated by three points with Meadeor - Rachel and Jim Meade in first place, second place Sugar - Susan and Garth Hichens, and third place Brilliant - Ken Appleton. The Alerion class winner was Hero Squad – Andrew Eyring, one point ahead of second place Halcyon – Jason Goscha, and in third position Magic – Jonah Seiger.
