75th Anniversary Invitational RC Sailing Regatta
We participated in this event on a course laid out in front of the LYC alongside the members of the Martin’s River Sailing Club. On our course we sailed our Soling 1m’s while a mixed group took part on the inner course. While not everyone was able to make the trip, we had a great turnout.
The wind cooperated with a stiff breeze that broke some rigging and at least one mast, along with a nice chop we don’t see sailing on Sullivan’s Pond. Luckily the LYC had a crash boat on hand with Commodore Andreas Josenhans at the controls. Andreas is a former Canadian Olympian in the Soling class in 1976, a two time world champion the in the Soling class and a member of several America’s Cup campaigns.
There were lot’s of spectators and a good time was had by all, hopefully we will have a chance to sail at LYC again in the future.
