Manhasset Bay Race Week Ends Fleet 6 Season

Manhasset Bay Race Week saw the cooling of loulou's season-long hot streak in the final distance race off the regatta. Great conditions met the racers with a clear fall day and 10 knots of breeze. loulou took the pin end and had an easy run to the first mark and held the lead on a downwind run to the next turn. The next leg, a 5-mile beat, initially had loulou still in control until they failed to cover Eclipse and let them sneak to the inside of a shore lift. Eclipse came back just a nose ahead and maintained a close cover pushing loulou to the outside. The second half of this beat was in a channel with very shifty winds. The brief Eclipse encounter allowed two other boats, Revelation and Peregrina, to the inside, also to pass. This put Eclipse one point up for the series, and they held their ground to the finish. Eclipse took the gold, loulou silver and Revelation the bronze. Paul Beaudin on loulou, although trying hard for a win was very happy for the great competition they have in the local fleet.   Complete results
