District 2  Regatta Report

Sat Aug 14th, 2004 through Sun Aug 15th, 2004

Regatta Base

2004 Lipton Cup Oxford

 

This year was the 73rd. running of the Tred Avon Yacht Club’s annual regatta. The event is a multi – class event which includes Stars, Lasers, Penguins, Opties, 420’s and Log Canoes. Also on Friday there is a big boat race from Annapolis to Oxford. Socially this is the big event for the summer on the Chesapeake with bands both Friday and Saturday nights with a formal trophy presentation on Sunday afternoon. To attend the presentation the ladies must wear a dress and the men a jacket and tie. It is very much like the old days.

Hurricane Charley was approaching the Chesapeake for the weekend and was predicted to pass the racing area on Saturday night. Charley was all smoke and no fire. We had very little wind with some rain. The racing over the weekend was done in very light wind and flat seas.

Even with the bad weather predicted we had a good turnout. Fourteen boats competed over the weekend in three races. Each race was sailed in the same conditions. John MacCausland with Bob Schofield came away with the overall victory followed by John Sherwood and Don Elliott rounding out the top three.
