2014 Sprite Island Douglass Orr Regatta
The 2014 Douglass Orr Regatta was held on June 21-22 at Sprite Island, Norwalk, CT, the home of Flying Scot Fleet 142. A total of 12 boats raced, hailing from Sprite Island Yacht Club, Cedar Point Yacht Club and Candlewood Yacht Club. Five races were held over two days in light air and the weather was gorgeous! Couldn't ask for better conditions. The winner of the regatta was not determined until the last race. Bob McElwain from CPYC and Mark Riefenhauser from CYC were in a tug war for first place overall with Bob prevailing at the end. Final results are attached. The regatta was the first of three legs of the Connecticut Cup. The second leg will be at Cedar Point Yacht Club in late September and followed by Candlewood Yacht Club in early October. Hope to see y'all next year!
