SSA Fall Regatta


Four very well matched Stars set out for a beautiful day of racing on Chesapeake Bay on Saturday 18 September. Three races were sailed under sunny skies with shifty Northeast breezes at 7-10 kts. Bert Collins and Jake Doyle held an early lead in race one, but eventually were passed on the last leg by Elliott Oldak and Chris Hardin. In race two, Davis Buckley took command with crew Claude Engle and held on for the bullet. Ben Fransen and Andy Noel finished close behind for second place. Race three saw Ben and Andy in control as they rounded the last mark and headed downwind for the finish. As in the conditions for most of the day, wind pressures were quite varied throughout the race area. Ben met with a reduced pressure area down the lay line, while Elliott and Chris found more pressure on a port jibe angle to the East. When they converged one boat length separated them as Elliott and Chris eased in front to win the race and the series with 6 points. Davis and Claude won a three way tie with Ben and Bert to clinch second place with 8 points respectively.
