2014 New England Districts - Sandy Bay YC, Rockport, MA

2014 NE Districts SBYC

The 2014 New England District Championships were held at Sandy Bay Yacht Club in Rockport, MA, on July 26, 2014.  On a partly sunny 75+ degree day, five races, perfectly set by the Race Committee, were run in southwest 12-15 knot winds, occasionally gusting a bit higher.  The 12-boat fleet were from 3 New England clubs - Sandy Bay Yacht Club, Massapoag Yacht Club and Duxbury Yacht Club. 

There did not seem to be a right way to go but it seemed that there was some magic in being a local fleet member because they always seemed to go the right way and it was not the same on every leg,  With Roger and Laura Sharp trying to defend their title, we saw the lead change in every race and boats starting at every point on the line.  At the end of the day, Roger and Laura were tied for first, but lost the tiebreaker to local fleet members Ned, Will and Thomas Jeffries, who won 3 of the 5 races, while the Sharps won the other 2. 

Thanks for Sandy Bay Yacht Club and Fleet 11 for hosting us this year.  The shore side hospitality was great with a buffet breakfast before the races and a barbecue with plenty of beverages after the races.  Perfect conditions, great friends and good food - a great combination for a fun regatta.  Congratulations to all
