In Class

(out of 6)

2nd in the big boat IRC class (IRC 6) which included "Rambler" (R/P 90, former "Shockwave"), "Donnybrook" (former "Magnitude 80"), the R/P 55 "Rima" and two TP52s. We were able to correct out ahead of all but Rambler which finished at 10am on Saturday. The rest of our class finished late afternoon on Saturday. It was a great race - with just about all conditions - breezy upwind, reaching, downwind, and becalmed on the way back into Long Island sound. We hit "The Race" at a good time on the exit, but were against the ebb on the way in.
