2008 Sunapee Open

 

Sailed at Sunapee, New York, USA.

Report by John Chiarella:
The 44th Sunapee Open was successfully sailed with 22 Stars on the line. Not discouraged by the current gas prices, twelve visitors traveled front as far away as Annapolis, Md to participate in the event.

Three races were scheduled on Saturday. Technology being what it is and the YC having wireless, several computers monitored various weather radars as a line of heavy storms closed in from the west. Fortunately they miss us. Unfortunately we held off the start until we were sure, which left time for one race, a course #3 starting off Jobs Creek to the weather mark at Soc Nipi in a light breeze. Andy Ivey took the lead and remained in. first place to the finish. A 140 degree wind shift on the second beat turned the race into a parade and at the finish nineteen year old Tomas Hornos from Boston Harbor crossed second and 2 time North American Champ John MacCausland was third.

The rain hit just minutes after the fires were started to cook the steak. Dick Atkinson saved the day keeping them going and the 180+ people enjoyed a great evening.

Sunday morning brought low black threatening clouds and light Northwest winds as the fleet headed across the lake. After a long wait a Course #4 got off in front of the old YC heading to the marks off Jobs Creek. Andy Ivey again had the lead but at the finish MacCausland had the victory. Bill Watson from Cedar Point on Long Island Sound was second and Fran Charles of Boston Harbor came in third. The final race was on the same course but with stronger winds and at times moderate ruin, Johnny Mac continued his winning ways with Barbara Vosbury from Annapolis in 2nd, Keith Donald of Bethlehem, PA taking 3rd.
