America’s Disabled / Open Regatta 2018

The regatta had three days of good racing with both light and medium/strong conditions. On Friday only one race was held in light 4 to 5 knot conditions. After one hour of racing the first four boats all finished within 2 boat lengths of each other with the lead changing hands multiple times in the last 100 meters with Peter Eager winning.

Saturday’s three races saw a building winds with the final race sailed in a 12 knot wind and choppy seas. Dee Smith and Bruce Millar showed they were the class of the fleet while the rest of us fought it out for third place.

Sunday was more of the same with winds starting at 6knots in the first race building to 13 knots in the second. Tony Sanpierre swamped in the second race when three big waves overwhelmed his manual pump.

A great regatta with warm weather, warm water and good competition.
