2014 NAC at Tom's River YC - Day 1 of Finals 7/23/2014

 

2014 AC Day 3

What a day on the beautiful Barnegat Bay!  With a south/southwest wind 18-20 with some gusts to 25, it was a dog eat dog world out there!   There 3 or 4 people overboard, and one boat over, and many just trying to stay upright..  The first start seemed like a gentlemanly start for the Championship Division.  However, there was lots of yelling on the start in the Challenger Division, a boat or two doing spins.  And in the second race, there was one general recall for the Championship Division before the Race Committee raised the "I" flag for BOTH fleets!  The decisions skippers had to make were to go left with more chop and more wind or go right with less wind but flatter water.  Oh the choices!   Watching two local boats, one went left and the other went right, and when they met up with each other upwind, one had to dip the other, so which way was better?  After the first day, the leaders in the Championship DIvision are Jeff Linton, John Kreidler and Rob Whittemore.  In the Challenger Division they are Roy Childers and Joe Thorpe tied for first and third is Glenn Shaffer.  Full results are here.

Another glorius day on Barnegat Bay and we could not have asked for better conditions.  With south winds at a steady 10 knots, we had a 5-leg Windward-Leeward race and at the end of the race, the Championship and Challenger Divisions were established.  We had one general recall and 2 boat over early in the 2 divisions, but there was very little contention, if any, on the race course.  So far, no protests!  The winners of today's races were Jeff Linton and John Luard.  As we start the finals, the top 5 skippers in the Qulifiers were Jeff Linton from Davis Island YC in FL, Larry Taggart from Southern YC in LA,  Mark Taylor from Davis Island YC, John Luard from Monmouth Boat Club in NJ and Roger Sharp from Massapoag Yacht Club in MA.  Watch here for updates as the week of racing continues.
