Oxford Regatta – One Design – Junior and Adult

TAYC | August 09-10, 2014

 

 

6 snipes descended upon Tred Avon YC in Oxford, MD for 7 very light air races in the flat waters of the Choptank river.  Holly and I consistently faired well by keeping a look out for the next puff and positioning our boat to get it.  We also were fairly conservative in our covering when we got ahead to make sure boats behind could not leverage too much and catch a random puff/shift.

As far as boat speed went, we tried to give the boat slight leeward heel and eased sails to keep the boat moving…at all times. We never pinched and tried to come out of the tacks fat and not close hauled. Chris J and his must have figured all this out on day two because they came to the race course with a vengence and finished a strong second.  Nice job guys!

The awards presentation was awesome, as expected. Between the exotic cheeses, smoked blue fish, and shrimp, we drove home on a full stomach.  Looking forward to 2015 in Oxford!
