Surf City – ACC Wrap up

June 17
12:39 2008

If you missed Surf City this year, you missed a good time on Barnegat Bay. Most people arrive on Friday afternoon to set-up their boats and a couple made afternoon practice sails on the Bay before the sunset. The annual Friday night BBQ was held at the Griffith homestead so that everyone could load up for what we knew would be a gruelling day on Saturday. Saturday morning, 14 boats hit Barnegat Bay in a 10-12 knot southerly which built to 15-20 with the reinforcing seabreeze. The RC effieciently fired off four, windward-leeward races, with Augie commanding the day with 4 bullets. While the rest of us were fighting the lactic acid build up in our legs, Augie’s super-crew, Kathleen, was even spotted full out hiking, hands out above her head, powering them through the chop! Way to go Kathleen!

Saturday night was the obligatory PORKLOIN grill-out on the patio back at the Griffith beach house. As always, the entire fleet enjoyed the festivities well into the night before sacking out at Lee’s. Sunday we awoke to hangovers and calmer weather. The fleet made it out to the course to an AP which lasted about an hour before the RC got off a four leg windward-leeward in 0-5 knots. The breeze came up a little for a second race in 5-7 as a frontal system began moving in. The seventh race was cancelled due to encroaching T-storms and the fleet raced for the the club.

At the end of the weekend, Augie & Kathleen walked away with the ACC championship easily with straight bullets. Annapolis boats were well represented though with Henry Filter & Wilson Stout taking second, Hal Gilreath (using the Stout boat) in third, 6-9 going to Gavin O’Hare with his Nationals crew and Houston resident Watt Duffy, Eric Reinke with Krysia Pohl (Standing in for Bridget), Aaron Sereniswith Lindsay crewing, & Brian and Joel Bays. Also making their first SC appearance was Ian Mutnick & Heather Ludemann.
