Summer Sea Breeze got off to a great start on Saturday with 22 boats in 3 classes racing in 6-16 knots out on the Piankatank. The storms rolled right around us and never really approached. Tom Roberts and his Race Committee team got 4 races in during the afternoon.
In the 10-boat ILCA class Jon Deutsch and Scott Adam were neck and neck trading places to tie points for first. The tie breaker would tip to Jon on account of his finish in the last race. Mike Moore came in 3rd and William Sutten was 4th overall and the top boat in an ILCA 6.
Not to be outdone – the 7-boat Melges 15 fleet was also settled on a tiebreaker between Rob Whittemore and Rachid Dalibalta who traded first and second in each race. Rob (& Reid) got the tiebreaker while John Hubbard & David Clark came in 3rd.
In the Flying Scot Fleet it was the distance travelers (Paul Newton) from Seattle with no spinnaker who won the day. John & Sharon Wake finished 2nd and Phil Webb was 3rd.
