June 30, 2012: Racing took place by Orient Point with an ebbing tide. The wind was around 8 knots from the West, creating ideal conditions for the fleet, with very close racing. The course had an offset mark, allowing for an additional leg off of the windward. There was also a gate set above the start line, allowing for a more tactical leeward mark rounding. The wind shifted West/Southwest towards the end of the day. There were three races completed. The top skippers for the day were: In third, Jay Cross; second, Jay Mills; and in first, Greg Ames.
June 23, 2012: The Etchells race started at 12:30 with 8 boats competing, in order to round the island in a timely manner. The race began with minimal breeze, with a start just outside of the mooring field. Sailors headed westward from the club to begin the race around the island, with around 4 knots of wind and a strong flooding tide. The wind slowly built from the west for the remainder of the race, allowing for the race to be completed around 4pm in about 11 knots of wind. The top three skippers were: third, Peter Rowsom; second, Will Ricketson; and in first place, Scott Kaufman.
June 30, 2012: There was a strong ebbing tide throughout the day; racing took place in Pipe’s Cove. The wind was around 6 knots, with gusts to about 11 knots from the west. The fleet had a different course this week, with the windward mark having an offset leg, as well as a leeward gate set above the finish line. This course was used in order to practice for the upcoming Nationals in August. The wind shifted right throughout the day, with the course being adjusted accordingly. In the final, 3rd race, of the day the wind shifted drastically to the West/Southwest; which significantly separated the fleet, depending upon which side of the course was used. The sailors that were on the left side of the course were able to be on layline early. There were three races completed and the top finishers for the day were: In fourth, Bruce and Susan Brewer; third, Steve Schram; second, Chip Luddecke; and in first, Angus MaCauley and Alexander.
June 23, 2012: The Herreshoff fleet began the race with a start just outside of the mooring field, with a nice 6 knot westerly breeze and a strong flooding tide. A strong lead was achieved by the Clark’s early due to an impressive port tack start. The windward mark was set in Pipes Cove, off of the point to ensure a steady breeze. Two laps were completed in the channel race, with a total distance of exactly 5 miles sailed by the fleet of 16. The top five finishers were: In fifth, Harry and Peg DiOrio; fourth, Susan and Bruce Brewer; third, Jeff and Holly Bresnahan; second, Angus McCauley and Chloe; and in first place, Denny and Ellen Clark.
