The ILCA Summer Regatta I on Saturday saw beautiful weather – mostly sunny with winds starting around 12 and building to about 15-16 knots out of the south west. We had 14 boats with 9 ILCA 7 (Standard) and 4 ILCA 6 (Radial) all starting on the same line making things more fun with more boats to race with around the course. Some of the Radial sailors were really fast and were nearby and beating many of the standards around the course. It kept things interesting at mark roundings.
FBYC’s junior coach for the summer, Francisco Renna, put on a clinic in the ILCA 7 (standard) fleet. He was fast all the way around the course and nobody came close to him in all 5 races. Rob Whittemore sailed consistently fast and consistently in the right spot to stay just ahead of Jon Deutsch and Luke Hayes who tied for 3rd place with the tiebreaker going to Luke.
Josh Bendura topped the ILCA 6 (Radial) fleet winning 3 out of 5 races. He was followed by Jordan Bendura and Logan Hayes.
David Hinkle and the RC did a great job keeping the course square getting us started cleanly. Photos thanks to Paul Almany.
