NESSA Team Racing Championship (Fritz Mark Trophy)

Summary

Saturday, May 20:

A great first day at the Fritz Mark Trophy hosted by Bowdoin College. Breeze started off North and then went Northwest allowing racing to take place in Widgeon Cove. Eventually the seabreeze filled in allowing for racing to take place right off the pier at the Coastal Studies Center. Two rounds of eight were completed just before 7:30 pm. A huge thank you to the army of volunteers that helped run and umpire the races. Congrats to St. Georges, Milton Academy, Tabor Academy, and the Hotchkiss School for qualifying for the top four.

The plan for tomorrow is to run two round robins composed of the top four to determine to overall winner and the top two teams that will qualify for the Baker Trophy.

Sunday, May 21:

Another great day of sailing on Harpswell Sound. After a short delay waiting for the sea breeze, racing got underway in a terrific southerly ranging from 8-12 knots. The double round robin of 4 teams was completed by 1:30 pm. Congrats to St. George's for winning the event and to Milton Academy with both teams qualifying for the Baker.

A huge thank you to the army of volunteers that help with the racing this weekend including Cori Radtke for running races, Frank Pizzo for moving marks, Tom Peabody and Megan for running the finish boat. Carl Zimba handled the scoring the event. We had a terrific group of umpires include Andrew Nugnes, Chester Jacobs, Harrison Hawk, Frances Jimenez, Erin Mullins, Fiona Gordon, and Geoff Pedrick. A big thanks also goes out to Harraseeket Yacht Club, the Bowdoin Crew Team, and the Marine Science Program at Bowdoin for allowing us to borrow a bunch of motorboats.
