St. Thomas Regatta

St. Thomas Regatta

The first day of racing at the St. Thomas Regatta took the fleet out of Cowpet Bay, around the heads to the east, then heading south down, mostly downwind on port tack to the port of Charlotte Amalie. After a midday break, the fleet then raced back to Cowpet Bay mostly upwind on starboard tack. The leader of CSA 3 after the first day was Jonathan Lipuscek's J/105 Dark Star with a 2-1. They beat their classmate Bryan Coon's J/105 Solstice who took second. For day two on Saturday, Dark Star managed to pull off two bullets for a huge class lead both for the day and the regatta. Their fellow classmates on Solstice also had an excellent day posting a 3-3. The stage was thus set for the final day of racing with more of the same spectacular, gorgeous sailing conditions. Lipuscek's team collected four firsts and two seconds en route to a dominant class win with just 8 points. Solstice, skippered by Bryan Coon, narrowly lost out a good chance to get onto the podium, finishing in fourth just one point back.   St. Thomas Regatta sailing information
