2012 New York State Championships

 

Report by Rick Burgess:

17 teams from four different districts arrived at the Seneca Yacht Club Friday to contest for the 2012 NYS championships.

Saturday morning we were treated to bright sunshine and 8 to 12 kts of wind NNW. This is a good direction for Seneca Lake and the race committee set a nice long windward/leeward course which was a two boat race between Cramer and Anosov which Cramer won in the last 200 yards. The race committee shorted up the course a little and took advantage of the great wind and sailed us another three races. So there we were sitting back at the club by 3:30, four races completed and enjoying Robís famous Rum Punch and telling stories about the days racing. The group then went to Jan and Rick Burgessís for a BBQ and Fireworks display.

Sunday continued with bright sun and a gentle southerly breeze in the 5 to 8 range. The positions changed quite a bit but in the end it was the team of Ivey/Krakower taking the win. So with four firsts and a second this years championship was dominated by the team of Cramer/Lymburner who took home the big prize.

So there we were regatta finished but still early so several teams asked the RC if we could have another race which we turned into a crew race. Great to see skippers sitting up front getting a better understanding of how easy it is to crew JJ.
