Skipper Dan Vought, at the helm, with crew Ted Duffy on the wind in race one of the MBC Full Moon Regatta.
Dan Vought and Ted Duffy have sailed together for years. They won the Monmouth Boat Club Flying Scot Full Moon Regatta in 2011 and both skipper and crew sail multiple one-design boats.
So it was no surprise on Saturday (June 11) in building winds - with gusts in the 20 mph range - that the pair guided their boat cleanly to three wins to take top honors in the Full Moon's 25th anniversary renewal. Many of the fleet of competitors made trips to the dock for repairs of booms, masts and rudders during the four-race regatta.
Vought, Rumson, and Duffy, Shrewsbury, got off to a great start winning the first windward leeward race set by PRO Dale Barney by a minute over defending champions Bernard and Andre'e Friel, Rumson, as the Navesink River winds -blowing on a long fetch from the West - increased in velocity and brought a short chop and small whitecaps to the river.
