Blustery Ted Hood Regatta

Eastern Yacht Club in Marblehead, MA hosted its annual Ted Hood Regatta in conjunction with the Corinthian Yacht Club and the Boston Yacht Club for a fleet of both one-design racers and offshore PHRF handicap sailors. Friday’s racing saw light winds, followed by a beautiful day with very lumpy, shifty northeast winds on Saturday. Racing was cancelled on Sunday due to 8-10 feet waves and 15-30 knot winds from the ENE. In the 17-boat J/105 fleet, Houston sailor Bill Zartler won with a 1-3-1 to take home the gold on DEJA VOODOO. Just one point back was another sailor from Houston—Ken Horne’s FINAL FINAL. Then Tim Russell on NE*NE took the bronze. For more Ted Hood Regatta information, visit
