2007 Lake Sunapee Open

 

From Bob Carlson
While 49 boats were finishing up the North Americans in Vancouver another 29 boats assembled at Lake Sunapee to race in the Sunapee Open.

This year’s Lake Sunapee Open was sponsored by Bacardi Rum. Janet Maizner of Bacardi was on hand to help with the event. On Friday evening there was the welcome party at the Chiarella’s house. This featured fireworks which Bob Carlson and John Carroll lit off.

Saturday saw nice racing in winds out of the west. Both races were run on Star Class Course 2. At the end of the day Rodrigo Meireles / Blake Mariner and Tomas / Luis Hornos were tied on points, with 5 points each.

On Saturday evening the famous Sunapee barbeque dinner was served. David Cook and Mike Wood got the fires stoked and cooked the steaks. Added to this was corn-on-the-cob and other delicious goodies.

Sunday’s race was run in wind out of the north-northwest. The wind was rather puffy, causing at least one knot-down. The course was Star Class Course 3. Local boats David Ivey / Greg Meyer and David Cook / Mike Wood took first and second. John Manderson / Roman Gotsulyak, who were in third place at the end of racing on Saturday, came in third in the final race to win the regatta. Saturday’s leaders, Team Hornos and Rodrigo Meireles / Blake Mariner came in 6th and 7th to place 2nd and 3rd in the regatta.

At the award ceremony a nice touch was that personalized towels were awarded. Aside from the over-all winners the special category winners were:
Novice: Tomas Hornos
Master: Ron Sandstrom
Grand Master: Bill Watson Exalted Grand Master: John Chiarella

Once again a great vote of thanks to Robin Cook who ran the Race Committee with her usual efficiency.
