The Fleet 6 opener at the American Yacht Club Spring Series was sailed in a variety of challenging and shifty conditions. Paul Beaudin and loulou seemed to have it the most figured out, posting seven first-place finishes in the 11-race regatta. A tight battle continued over two weekends with Maddy Ploch and the Young Americans winning the team’s first ever second place fleet finish, nipping Harald Edegran and Jeremy Henderson’s Conundrum (finishing third even after taking a season off). The fleet is happy to see them back. Fourth was fleet captain Thom Herring and Trifecta. loulou was also awarded the 1888 Trophy for best overall performance in a One-Design division.
