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!

Full results are here.  A short You Tube video of some of the racing is here.

2014 28th Annual Saratoga Lake Regatta

2014 Saratoga Day 1

The Saratoga Lake 28th Annual Flying Scot Regatta in Saratoga, NY, fielded 26 boats, 17 in the Championship Division and 9 in the Challenger,  We started out Saturday 8/9/2014 with little wind on the lake, so we visited with old friends and made some new friends as we waited for the wind to fill in.  The Race Committee decided about 2PM that there might be enough wind to get us out there.  We paddled part way out to the course, then flew spinnakers to get to the RC boat.  In light air we raced 4 legs of an Olympic course in about 1.5 hours, so the race was shortened at the windward mark.  We hoped for a little more wind on Sunday, but it never came.  Greg and Diane Kampf from Massapoag Yacht Club won the Championship Division and Greg and Steve Northrup from Candlewood Yacht Club won the Challenger Division. Final results are here.
