Big Breeze at Block on Day 2

Big Breeze at Block on Day 2

Tuesday had the breeze up at the East Coasts at Block Island. The classic Around The Island Race was sailed. Bruce Stone showed his San Fran form to take the gun followed by Andrew Kennedy's Bat 4 from Annapolis and Paul Beaudin's loulou of Harlem, NY. Loulou made big gains upwind recovering from an over early and downwind gear failures to pass four boats on the last long beat inching out current leader James MacDonald of Bermuda. Big gear failures in the 30-knot breeze had Josh Burack losing the rig on Perigrena. On a tack, the rig snapped at the top spreader. Eclipse had the jib halyard snap at the start, but at least made it around the course for a seventh with five minutes lost at the start and bareheaded changes. The next few days have moderate sunny conditions.   Results
