The Presentation of the Green Star Award to Bob Lippincott

2009 MRYC One Design


Stars have been sailing the annual one-design regatta at Miles River Yacht Club for many years to, typically, light air conditions. Saturday, we waited in Eastern Bay for any air and abandoned at 1 PM. Sunday, Miles River winds were southerly at about 10 knots with a forecast of threatening weather later in the day. Two races were sailed and the third race abandoned for weather. The left side of the course appeared to be favored and John MacCausland and Mike Hecky won the “John Charles Thomas Memorial Trophy” and the regatta, followed closely by Bert Collins and John Morrison.

This event was also the Green Star for 2009 and four novices competed. Bob Lippincott and Mike Zuschnitt edged Laura Beigel and Read Beigel for this honor.

Two local boats participated and the top local boat trophy was awarded to Don Elliot and Tom Campbell.

The Second District Stars appreciate being included in this multi-class regatta.
