Bay Shore Regatta June 6, 2017
1. Dennis Ahern - Jolly Mon (Morgan 22)
2. Gary Sebouhian - Pandemonium (C&C 29-2)
3. Harry Manko - Full Circle (Tartan 3500)
4. David O'donnell - Indigo (Broadblue 38)
Tonight we witnessed yet another incorrect weather forecast. Fortunately for the boats that raced it stayed dry. The winds were moderate and consistently from the north-northeast which kept the bay flat. It was the perfect late October evening race except for the fact that it is June. Hopefully next Tuesday night we'll have some more realistic June temperatures.
Welcome David O'donnell who was racing indigo, his Broadblue 38 catamaran for the first time with us on Tuesday night. Hope to see you out there racing regularly. There was certainly an eclectic mix of boats racing tonight. Handicap ratings ranged from a low of 132 for Harry Manko's boat Full Circle to a high of 246 for Dennis Ahern's boat Jolly Mon who took line honors tonight. Congratulations Dennis and crew!
Half way down the last leg of the course there was a lot of tweaking going on aboard Gary Sebouhian's Pandemonium. Trying to hold off the charging Full Circle was a challenge. I'm sure the crew aboard Full Circle was busy too. Close finishes like this keep the fun meter pegged!
Main halyard and rope clutch problems kept Lady in Red in her slip tonight. I can't wait to be out there racing with you all next week although I really enjoyed being on Gary's boat again tonight.
