The Closing Day Regatta was started in a brisk cool breeze under clear skies, a typical fall day on the Chesapeake! Eleven boats started and raced in pursuit format (staggered starts) and raced two laps out in the bay with lots of reaching (great for the non-spinnaker and J-105s) and sailed up into Fishing Bay to finish off the club dock.
There were six spinnaker boats and five non-spinnaker. Shamrock took the honors followed by Eagerness, Wavelength and Loose Cannon. Pictures of the starts, a windward mark rounding and some finishes are posted at http://www.fbyc.net/Events/2002/Offshore/1019/photos.
Thanks to Waddy Garret for organizing the 12.9 Mile race course and starting squences and David Lee and others who served on Race Committee, checking details and getting everything right!
