46th Annual Long Island Regatta

Stafford Patterson Reports:

Highlights from the 46th Annual Long Island Regatta 2013

Winds were 15 to 20+ MPH the whole Regatta. Very puffy/gusty and shifty, more so than usual.

Monday 3/06: Nomad, Randy, Richard, the Rage and the Dove arrive Salt Pond safe and sound.

Tuesday 4/06: Richard, Randy & Duncan glass Rage mast crack below gooseneck. Andrew Curry, Andrew Wilhoyte, Bob, Eric, Stafford arrive Long Island. Crew plays tourist balance of the day.

Wednesday 5/06: Rig both Rage & Dove for competition, replace Rage mainsail headboard. In the afternoon the Junior competition got going and from our vantage point on Nomad, we witness Juniors yelling at a local C Class practicing and in the way as the Juniors were racing. Ah, tradition!

Thursday 6/06: 1st (Ocean) Race and the Rage is 3rd at the windward marker thanks to a collision between Courageous and Running Tide, around the mark had to gybe unexpectedly, mainsheet wrapped around tiller head and snapped it off when the boom came over, score a DNF. Stafford got a 1st in the Sunfish/Lazer Class “G”. After lunch the Dove got a 5th (of 9) (anchor pulled loose at start) and Rage was 9th (of 9) in the 1st series points race.

Friday 7/06 The Dove – 5th (sail too small) – Stafford/Sunfish 4th (capsized twice) – Rage was 7th. Courageous and Ruperts Legend tangle with Courageous causing Legends mast to snap. Ouch!

Saturday 8/06: Rage scores a 7th and all the sailors wonder when are we gonna modify the bottom like all the other older boats have done. Rich sails the Sunfish to a 3rd place. Dove has the right sail, has a good start, 3rd. And which boat was last to be hauled onto the barge to Nassau? You guessed it – the Dove. Overall results below.
