Three intrepid EC12 sailors from HAMYC set off for Bethany Ct on Thursday to sail in the Housatonic Model Yacht Club first annual EC12 Fall Classic regatta on the weekend of October 13 & 14, 2018
What a beautiful location and a great bunch of people! The wind was not as cooperative as we may have hoped and it was a real challenge all weekend. Weather aside we were well cared for and had a great time. The Regatta was sailed as one fleet of 13 boats and we sailed 27 races over two days.
Thanks to Don Ouimette who organized and won the regatta and RD Fred Goebel and his crew of volunteers.
Welcome to two new sailors joining us for the first time on Sunday, Brian and Stephen McDonah. They are new to model racing but no strangers to sailing and acquitted themselves well getting around the course and staying out of trouble. The next step is to get the tuning down and start winning!
