Red Grant Regatta

Red Grant Regatta

The Raritan Yacht Club of Perth Amboy, New Jersey hosted their 69th annual Red Grant Regatta on July 11-12 as part of the yacht club's 150th anniversary celebration. The regatta hosted 56 boats including nine J/105s and nine J/109s, along with several PHRF spinnaker/non spinnaker and cruiser classes. The weather was typical summer conditions for Lower NY Harbor/Raritan Bay with warm temperatures and light breezes of 5-8 knots. In the very competitive J/105 fleet, Marcus Wunderlich's Stratos edged out Paul Zajac's skal in the last reach of the last race to win the race and take home the regatta trophy by a point over Ann and Gary Myer's Magic. Magic was unbeatable the first day of the regatta, taking all the bullets. Skal took third overall. The regatta benefitted the charity Easter Seals of New Jersey and had the lead sponsor of Goslings.    Results
