2014 Cedar Point Open for the Bedford Pitcher

 

Fourteen boats contested the Bedford Pitcher over two days in marginal mini-hike conditions on Long Island Sound. On Saturday, summer-like Sound conditions prevailed, with oscillating 6-10 knots from the southwest before the expected arrival of a cold front. The race committee wisely brought us in after only two races. On Sunday we had the far trickier northerly conditions for the first two races, with the weather mark close to the beach. But for the finale, the breeze hauled around to the south for a light air affair.

Will Swigart and Brian Fatih came out on top of some very close head to head racing with Tomas Hornos and Josh Revkin, who were handicapped in the series by a DNS in the first race. Ben Sternberg with Arthur Anosov showed impressive speed on Sunday and earned a series second. And in the last race, Keith Donald and Kevin Elterman started fast and opened up on every leg for an impressive win.

Guy Gurney and Cedar Point Yacht Club did an excellent job of race management. And competitors were treated to a spectacular display of nature’s power from the comfort of the Club’s upstairs ballroom as the cold front passed through during Saturday night’s socializing. The Central Long Island Sound fleet and Fleet Captain Rich Gordon deserve credit for organizing an excellent event, on and off the water.
