  • Sports: On the Bay

    Isn't this weather great! Even the frostbiters, who are used to sailing in the worst conditions, appreciated the gift of good wind that Mother Nature provided last Sunday, March 11. It was sunny and in the mid 40s, but with winds out of the NW at 10 knots gusting to 15 and sometimes higher, it was cold on the water. But there were no complaints heard as the Race Committee continued starting races well into the afternoon, finishing with eight races by the end of the day. There was a short interruption in the starting sequence to lend assistance to a capsized boat that got stuck on a mooring stake. The good news is both skipper and crew, while wet, were safe and transported quickly to land. Results for the day: Ideal 18s (6 boats): 1. #175, Ed McLaughlin and Chris Shields, 2. #171, Bob Kirtland and Alan Thompson, and 3. #12, Sandy Lindenbaum and Bob Schwartz. Top boats in the IC dinghies: 1. #17, Paul-Jon Patin and Donna Marie Cipollone, 2. #536, Pedro Lorson and Johanna Silbersack, and 3. #514, Ted Toombs and Jenny McCarthy. FULL STORY
