East Coast Championship at BIRW Starts With Stiff Competition

East Coast Championship at BIRW Starts With Stiff Competition

Day one had beautiful weather for sailboat racing with 12-16 knots of wind and sunny skies. Three races had the 16-boat J/105 fleet working hard all day. Race 1 had loulou first around the top mark followed by Eclipse, back with Pam Morris trimming the spinnaker after a year long maternity leave. Eclipse made the pass downwind to take the gun in the first race. But it was James MacDonald and team Bermuda on Distant Passion that kept every finish solid and took a strong bullet in the last race for the top spot on the leader board on Day One. Paul Beaudin's loulou is sitting second, followed by Damian Emery's Eclipse, the last boat of the week winner of this bi-annual event. With five days of racing and no throw outs, this will be an exciting event for sure.    Results
