NESSA Great Oaks Qualifier


Sunday, September 24:

The day started with a question and answer session with Dave Perry who shared his knowledge and discussed light air boat handling and several rules situation. Immediately after the sailors were shuttled out to our island dock and rigged up 13 FJ’s. Racing took place a couple hundred yards off of St. Mary's point in Black Rock in 4-6 kts out of the SSW. Although the wind was light it held through the day and allowing us to get in a total of seven races. After racing ended the hungry sailors chowed down on Peps's Pizza, with refreshments provided by the official drink of Sail Black Rock, Regatta Ginger Beer. In the end, Fairfield Ludlowe sailed an impressive series to come out on top, followed by North Kingstown in second and Cape Elizabeth in third. The sailors were awarded gold, silver and bronze rope bracelets in the awards ceremony. In addition, Sail Black Rock raffled off a Team Oracle hat signed by Jimmy Spithill and a poster of Oracle's AC72.
