2010 Lipton Cup and District 5 Championships

No time for tea as 19 boats converged on Santa Barbra from San Diego in the south and Seattle to the north. They met this past weekend to compete for the 80 year old Sir Thomas Lipton Cup and the District 5 Championships. Sir Thomas Lipton donated the exquisite trophy to Santa Barbara Yacht Club in the 1920ís and it has been annually contested by the Star Class for the last forty years.

The SBYC hosted a superb event coordinating housing and hospitality on and off the water; they even provided drinks and snacks off the Race committee boat each day which were appreciated by all.

The wind cooperated both days with just a short delay to start the day but it filled from the south and built to provide great racing. There were four races on Saturday and three on Sunday.

On Saturday the wind was a bit less than normal ranging from 6 to 8 knots with the standard persistent shift to the right. Reynolds/Haenel led the day finishing ahead of Gould/Sieck by 2 points and Doyle/Ziskind by 9. On Sunday the sun came out quicker and the wind built a bit more to 8 to 10 knots with the right even more favored. In the first race of the day Gould/Sieck picked up 2 points on Reynolds/Haenel but in the next race Reynolds/Haenel took the win to go into the last race with a comfortable lead after discard. Doyle/Ziskind won the last race to finish 3rd overall, Gould/Sieck 2nd and Reynolds/Haenel 1st. Mitchell/Marzhal owned the right all day and powered away to a 1,2,2 despite the fact that Mitchell continued to leak blood from a somewhat minor incident the night before.

Back at the club on Sunday the Club hosted post race drinks and a full pasta bar buffet followed by the Trophy presentation by the Commodore Roger Chrisman. The depth of history and the names engraved on the five foot tall Lipton Cup is quite impressive. Mark and Hal were certainly honored to add their names for the second time to the trophy.
