    • 2019 North East River Yacht Club’s Annual Jr. Fall CBYRA Regatta

      Robert Lippincott, Optimist Program Manager

      Ten Annapolis Yacht Club sailors traveled to the head of the Chesapeake Bay to compete in the annual North East River Jr. Fall Regatta. This is the second to last Regatta of the CBYRA Junior Regatta circuit for 2019. Our sailors had some outstanding results at this year’s event.

      Saturday morning started off with breeze ranging from 5-6 knots and then built to 8-10 knots in the afternoon. AYC had four RWB sailors and six Green Fleeters competing for the championship. AYC’s top RWB Sailor was Ava Arepally, sailing very consistently throughout the day. Our teams, both RWB and Green Fleet, were getting off the line this weekend with excellent boat speed, clear lanes, and front row starts. As their coach it was very exciting to watch our summer’s hard work paying off!!

      Congrats goes out to our top three Green Fleet sailors this weekend for sailing extremely fast and smart. Ben Gendell sailed very well to win the regatta, followed closely by Tommy McGeady in second place, and Luke Reinecke (sailing his first Green Fleet Regatta ever!) placing 3rd overall and receiving a bullet in one race.

      Our Annapolis Yacht Club Opti Teams are getting excited for our last CBYRA Regatta of the year, which will be located in our home waters of Annapolis, Maryland. Our Annual Halloween Howl is always a big treat! Our sailors get to come to the regatta dressed up in their Halloween costumes.

      High School Regatta Recap

      Sarah Alexander, 420 Program Manager

      We had three successful regattas this weekend! Saturday’s Varsity regatta at DC Sail had really light wind, but there were still eight races. All of our Varsity teams attended and sailed well. St. Mary’s placed third, Annapolis was sixth, Key was eighth, and Severna Park placed ninth out of fifteen boats.

      On Sunday, four of our JV teams and all of our Varsity teams travelled to BCSC. It was a gorgeous day for sailing with a steady Southerly breeze that lightened up a bit throughout the day. There were six long races for both JV and Varsity. Our JV teams have been improving quickly this season and St. Mary’s sailed very well and placed second, Severna Park was eighth, Indian Creek was twelfth, and Key was fifteenth.
