D2 Championship/Miller Series

 

It all started out looking too calm, cool and collected.....overcast, no breeze and a lot of current due to the dams being opened up on the Susquehanna. The committee towed us across the shipping channel to the flats where some of us promptly anchored and waited for the breeze to fill in. Close to 2 hours later a little puff turned into a 345 course. The committee was able to pull of two good races on Saturday.

Saturday evening the GIYS put on their traditional (72 years) dinner in the Rotunda of their clubhouse. The Clubhouse is on the bay side of the Island and it all glass front provides beautiful views of the Chesapeake Bay. The atmosphere provided the the "icing on the cake" for the superb dinner.

Sunday's weather forecast was better and we weren't yet privvy to just how much better. The breeze filled in at around 200 degrees and built to about 15 kts. at 195 by the third race of the day.

In the end, John MacCausland and Shane Zwingelberg won a tie breaker with Pete McChesney and Mike Jones to win the Miller Series and earn another Blue Star.

Many thanks to Murray Leigh for putting the event together, Claude Engle, Ron Ward, Jack Lynch and the rest of the great Race Committee people who lent their time and their boats to make this a successful District Championship and Miller Series.
