9/17-18/16, Peachtree City Regatta by Tom Evens, edited by Tom Phillips

Turtle Pond MYC #298 hosted the 3rd annual event on Lake McIntosh, Peachtree City, GA. Saturday seventeen skippers from four states formed at the start line in partly cloudy skies and winds 3-10mph. Fifteen races were completed in a wide range of conditions over a two laps around course. Three race blocks followed by a rest period allowed the sailors ample race and recovery time. Five skippers emerged as the contenders for the top spot: Skip Allen, Reichard Kahle, Dave Linville, Joe Walter and Jack Ward all equally shared 1st place finishes. Great conversations, food and beverage at a local bistro capped off a relaxing end to the day!

Sunday’s forecast included possible isolated to scattered thunderstorms. The first race start count was interrupted by a brief, but moderate rain shower. After a short delay, and despite light winds, three quick heats were sailed on a beautifully mirrored lake surface. Then the forecasted “isolated” part settled directly overhead and everyone “scattered” for shelter. End of regatta! Our first significant rain in months. Trophies and thank yous were handed out to the soaked competitors as the rain pelted our gazebo shelter. We appreciate the time and effort taken by all to participate and special thanks to Ricky Gerry for the hand crafted awards.

We look forward to the EC12 fleet returning here to Peachtree City October 25-28, 2017 for the National Championship Regatta.

Top Five:

1 Reichard Kahle 67 38

Remaining finishers: Scott Vernon, Chuck Millican, Tom Phillips, Jack Shepard, Jim Rutherford, Ken Williams, Tom Linville, John Muhlhausen, Chuck Ellis, Scott Linville, David Pulling (“The Slowski Award”), Bob Jones.

8/5-7/16, Mystic Race Week by Chuck Luscomb

Mystic Race Week features the J Class R1 Championship on Friday followed by the EC12 Class R1 Championship on Saturday and Sunday.

Well that was some of the best conditions I have seen at Mystic in some time. Three perfect days with S-SW breezes 8-10 kits with some occasional higher gusts. Perfect for this venue. The Seaport extended their generosity once again and rolled out the red carpet for us.

9/23/16 Jim Child wins WRMYC Match Racing Championship

In light winds of 4 - 6 MPH, and sunny skies, w/ temps in the low 80's, TWENTY boats contested the WRMYC Match Racing Championship.

Three years ago, this event replaced the usual Friday afternoon practice session with a Match Racing Tournament. Result is a LOT more participation, and for some this is as much fun as regular fleet racing (as we do on Saturday and Sunday of the regatta weekend).

After some 320 separate matches (pairs racing), in 4 hours today- the winner is Jim Child, of Fairhaven, NY. Jim won, by two points, over last year's champion, John McKinney of Woodstock, ON, CAN.
Look at how close the scores are!!!

1. Jim Child, Fairhaven NY.........19 points
2. John McKinney, Woodstock, ON, CAN...21
3. Bob Schuster, Mentor, OH.....22
4. Don Hain, Amhurst NY......24
5. Bob Green, Lakewood, OH......25
6. Bob Valentine, Fairport Harbor, OH...25
7. Mike Wyatt, Perry, OH..........25
8. Dave Steger, Euclid, OH........26
9. Steve Sears, Madison, OH.......27
10. Sam Santora, Garfield Heights, OH.. 28

5 - Don Ouimette
6 - Doug Jones
7 - Jack Ward
24 - Frank Vella
31 Boats participated in a promotion/relegation, 3-fleet format. Winds were... well it's Stowe, so use your imagination. (Friday, zero gusting to one. Saturday, remarkably good, but zero to very gusty on Sunday.)

7/30-31/16 - Can-Am Challenge
SCMSC was well-represented at the Stowe (Vt) Yacht Club's Can-Am Challenge. Twenty-eight Soling 1M boats sailed sixteen races using the odd-even format with 3 throw-outs. The winner was Colin Mosgrove (Massachusetts) with 20 points. Second was Doug Jones (SCMSC) with 23 points. Third was Bruce Nourjian (Stowe) with 30 points. Sun Coast's Don Ouimette was 5th and Bill Croft was 9th.
The Can-Am trophy was won by the US - Eh?

06/27/16 - Canadian Nationals, Soling 1M
Our own Janice Anderson finished third out of 14 boats at the Canadian National 1 Meter Soling Championship held this weekend on Heckman's Island, Lunenburg County, Nova Scotia.

06/13/16 - "Sail what you brung" is turning into a huge success. Using a handicapped start, all boats have a chance at winning. Imagine a Micro Magic beating a US 12! Some sailors are even using rigs from different boats. See the Sailing Schedule page for the next race day.
