District 12  Regatta Report

Sat Jul 16th, 2005 through Sun Jul 17th, 2005

Regatta Base

2005 New York State Championship

 

Report by Rick Burgess:

On Friday as boats started to arrive at the Seneca Yacht Club, things did not look all that good out on the water. It was 90+ degrees with about the same humidity and not a breath of wind. The weather forecast did not look all that promising as the remains of hurricane Dennis were still in the area.

Well, lo and behold as the 19 boats from 10 different fleets arrived on Saturday morning there it was, a 14 to 18 mph southerly breeze. Now on Seneca Lake, which is about 55 miles long, and 3 miles wide, this is absolutely the best breeze we can get. The fleet left the dock and we were treated to 3 of the best races I have sailed all year.

The racing was extremely close and at the end of the day after three races it was John MacCausland in first with Arthur Anosov in 2nd, and Brian Cramer just two points behind in 3rd.

When we got back to the dock all I saw were faces with big smiles and a lot of people saying what a great time they just had. Rob Eberling treated the fleet to his now famous Rum Punch over the next couple of hours and then the fleet was treated to a BBQ and fire works display at the home of Jan and Rick Burgess. All said and done it was a really great day on Seneca Lake.

When we arrived on Sunday morning there was still a very nice southerly in the 8 to 12 mph range. We left the dock and were treated to 2 more of what we had the day before, really great sailing. In the end it was John MacCausland taking home the big trophy and Arthur Anosov 2nd.

I want to thank Bob Westcott for organizing a really great regatta. I also want to thank Claude Bonanni and family for their very large contribution to the fireworks display on Saturday night.

As is always the case at regattas there are just way to many people to single out BUT, if I donít thank Marline Koberg and my wife Jan for their work in putting on the BBQ Saturday night I might not have a place to sleep, so thank you all.

Iím not sure how we will be able to top this years regatta next year, but for those who were there Iíll bet they will be there again next year.
