Regatta Base

2005 Levin Memorial

 

By John A. MacCausland

The start of the Star sailing season each year in North America is at Coral Reef Yacht Club. This year was no exception with a week of very nice weather. The season started off with a bang. Thirty-seven teams raced in a three race regatta. This event would serve as the first of three regattas that would pick the 2005 U.S. Sailing Team.

Prior to the regatta U.S. Sailing ran a three-day clinic with Ed Adams coaching. Six teams were invited to the clinic along with Freddy Lf, the defending World Champion. This was the start of the 2008 Olympic program for many of the teams at the clinic.

Racing throughout the weekend was very tight. Conditions were on the light side, eight to ten knots of breeze. After the first day of racing Eric Doyle and Brian Sharp were leading with the rest of the fleet close behind.

Sunday the racing was done in much of the same conditions that we had on Saturday. Two starts were brought back by general recall, with the final start run under the black flag. By the first mark many of the lead boats from Saturday were well back in the fleet. Andy Beadsworth and David Carr sailed a solid race to the gun for race three and an overall win. Not bad for his first Star regatta. Three other boats were one point behind. They all tied for second with John MacCausland and Brian Fatih coming out on top and Will Stout and Darrell Hiatt rounding out the top three. With the racing this close and so many good teams, the rest of the winter in Miami should be very interesting
