Great Battles Wrap American Spring Series

Great Battles Wrap American Spring Series

Light air continued for the second weekend of the spring opener. Saturday had George and Ann Wilbanks' Revelation winning the day with a 1,1,3 followed by Paul Beaudin's loulou with a 3,2,1, putting loulou in first and Revelation in second going into the last day. Sunday had a match race for the two top spots with Revelation pressuring loulou hard at every opportunity. Race one was Conundrum first followed by Revelation and loulou right behind. The final race had both point leaders with an even closer match, pushing them back in the pack with loulou making the last pass on the downwind to take the regatta by three points. The junior team from American Yacht Club sailing Young American (ex Kinsem) came on strong, winning the last race to take their first regatta podium finish followed by Conundrum with a 1,3 to move up to fourth. Six different boats had bullets in this regatta, with Young American taking three. Even though the cold weather left many not launched in time for this event, the racing was still as competitive as it has been in years.   Complete results
