On Saturday November 7th, Annapolis Yacht Club hosted the MASSA Keelboat Championship. The regatta was held in the AYC club owned six J22s and a total of six races were completed as each team rotated through each boat. The day started with no wind as the J22s were towed out to the race area. Upon arriving outside of the Harbor, the breeze filled in at 5-7 knots out of the NNW. Coaches from out-of-town schools, Colin Voigt (Norfolk Academy) and Hunter Farris (Southwestern Central) were provided with RIBs and assisted as the Leeward and Windward Mark boats. A course was set and races commenced at 10:33am. With slight shifts in the direction of the wind, the mark boats did a great job of keeping the course square and of a length comparable to the varying wind speed.
A huge thank you goes out to Fredric Salvensen, Carl Mott, Colin Voigt, Hunter Farris, and Jane Millman for helping with Race Committee. MASSA would also like to thank Annapolis Yacht Club for the generous use of their Club owned J22s for this event. MASSA is proud to send the top two teams, Archbishop Spalding and Annapolis High to compete in the National Keelboat Invitational being held at St Petersberg Yacht Club November 20-22, 2015.
