Moriches Yacht Club in New York hosted the 2022 NERD with 17 boats on the line. Saturday came with big breeze 10-17 MPH and temps in the high 80's. Hopefully there were no shark sightings, although the movie Jaws was playing on a big screen on the lawn Saturday night! Sunday was about the same wind and temps so the teams, with some sailing 3 up, had a great workout The top 3 skippers were in their early 20's and gave the others a run for their money. Congratulations to the winners and thanks to Moriches Yacht Club gif hosting a super event!
