AYC Spring Has Topsy Turvy Weekend One

AYC Spring Has Topsy Turvy Weekend One

Chilly temps and very light and fluky conditions greeted the hearty 10 boats that showed for the first weekend of the Fleet 6 season. With snowflakes only two days prior, this year is getting off to very slow start for all the sailors on Long Island Sound. Race one had loulou launched at the last turn only to be nipped at the finish by Za Jelliffe and team on Arete. The second race had the juniors on Young American helmed by Megan Ploch just ahead of loulou at the first mark, a position they held to the finish with loulou being the first major casualty of the weekend sailing into a hole that they never got out of (going from second to last). This was a pattern that would continue throughout the weekend, and it turned out that no leader was immune from the 'way back affliction.' Arete followed the kids to lead on day one. Day two was a bit warmer but still light and challenging. David Greenhouse on Skipperdee had the most solid day posting a 2,1 and moving them to the top of the standings with the juniors on Young American taking another bullet in the first race, tied right behind with loulou. Going into weekend two, with the next race bringing the throw-out into play, will have the top three boats tied and the top 6 separated only by 6 points.   Full results
