Good Trade Takes American Yacht Club Fall Series

The 2017 Fall Series Regatta ended October 1 at American Yacht Club in splendid fashion. This Saturday and Sunday concluded the latter half of the Fall Series Regatta which occurred over the course of two weekends. Saturday racing was met with an anticipated Fall feel as temperatures hovered below 60 degrees with oscillating winds ranging from 15-20 knots. The higher than forecasted breeze velocities created some epic sailing conditions and top speed records for certain boats. Towards the end of Saturday, several boats set personal speed records both upwind and downwind. Eight8 classes of boats embraced the chilly weather to compete on the Long Island Sound. The competition was fierce in the J/105 fleet. A tiebreaker for first place left Good Trade (StFYC) skippered by Bruce Stone and Nicole Breault winning the class and Eclipse (MSSA) skippered by Damian Emery finishing in second place.
