New York Yacht Club Annual Regatta
New York Yacht Club | Newport, RI | Jun 11-12, 2016 | SRM VIII (C&C 30)
2nd (out of 7)
(out of 7)
Strong comeback and nice results! Around the Island Race presented very challenging conditions - with three restarts (wind stop / start). Finish was one for the record books - dozens of big boats converging on the finish line at the same time - including a few 12 meters. Definitely some carnage. Day one of the annual presented light, shift air, and Day two of the regatta presented big breeze and sea state. We were the only 30 that did not wipe out downwind - likely thanks to our Thursday practice and wipe-out there.
