10 teams came to the Annual Newport Regatta. Marie Gendron traveled from Canada and Peter Scannell represented Ireland to add to the international flavor of the regatta. Also making guest crewing appearances were Peter Alarie and Eric Boothe.
Saturday started hot with a bit of the northerley still working as the fleet sailed out to Potters Cove. After a bit of a delay with some time for swim practice and visiting with the other fleets on our course, the southerly did fill in and the RC was able to get one race off before the breeze shifted and they moved to the east side of the bay. Thompson and Curtin took the first race with Zagol and Buttner in second and Ben Greenfield sailing with 49er crew Trevor Burd took 3rd. A second race closed out the day before the fleet returned to the beach and retired to the tent for the provided dinner. Zagol/Buttner took the scond race followed by Tom Kivney sailing with guest crew Peter Alarie, and Mike Komar and Russell Miller in third.
Sunday saw three more races in mixed conditions, with Komar/Miller taking the first race followed by Zagol/Buttner, and Delfosse/Marini who were able to hold onto 3rd despite Sol's unplanned departure from the boat during the last run (Don't forget to check the trap rings...). In the end Zagol and Buttner finished first overall followed by Komar/Miller and Thompson/Curtin.
