2009 Nutmeg Regatta

 

Sailed at Milford Yacht Club, Connecticut. Report by David Bolles:

In contrast to the Bedford Pitcher, which saw 34 entries, most of which went on to compete in the North American’s, this year’s Nutmeg Regatta had a very small turnout of 8 boats.

While two days of racing were scheduled, races were run only on Saturday. On Sunday a combination of rain, a lack of wind, and a rather dense fog bank on Long Island Sound caused cancellation of the 2 races scheduled for the day.

Saturday’s racing took place in a southwesterly breeze which uncharacteristically not only oscillated in wind speed, causing crews to be in the boats for brief moments and then full hiking the next for longer periods of time, but also in direction, varying 20º either side of the medium of about 140º. Despite the rather inconsistent wind John Edenbach and Will Christenson were able to pick the right way to go by the end of each race, even though at times they found themselves out of phase as the race began, giving them the clear win for the regatta.
