Around the Island Race (Conanicut YC)
Conanicut Yacht Club | Newport, RI | Sep 05, 2021 | SRM IX (Carkeek 47)
1st (out of 87)
(out of 8)
1st in Class; 1st to Finish; 1st Elapsed Time - and a moral victory for 1st Overall on Corrected time. Though the results show us as 2nd overall, the boat scored in 1st place “Space Cadet” is a VX One that sailed with an improper rating. They used a trapeze (as everyone saw), and allegedly had 150lbs taken off the bulb and was never remeasured and re-rated for these changes. Apparently, the other VX owners (all Class E) approached the owner requesting he withdraw. He has refused. Very disappointing lack of sportsmanship and fair play.
