Fishing Bay Yacht Club 73rd Annual OD Regatta held August 11-12, 2012

34 Scots sailed in our 73rd Annual OD Regatta, which saw a total of 120 boats in 9 different classes.  Conditions varied over the two days from 7-10 knots on Saturday to a dying breeze on Sunday.  6 races were completed and John Aras from AYC stole the show once again with 5 bullets.  He retired from the 6th race, as this was his throwout.  The field was chock full of EXCELLENT competition from the mid-Atlantic  with Harry Carpenter, David Neff, John Kreidler, Rob Whittemore, Len Guenther and many others attending.   Quite a bit of excitement on Saturday when a severe TS hit the fleet at the end of the 2nd race.  Winds were in the mid-30s and three Scots capsized. 

Here is a video of some of the highlights from the Regatta:

Here is the results for the Scot fleet:

Due to the popularity of this event (the numbers keep growing), the Flying Scot Fleet had its own course and excellent RC.   This will continue next year.  The AOD is always held in Mid-August, so put this on your calendar for next year.
