Banks Blackwell Regatta


Saturday, October 5:

Saturday began cool with a light breeze from the east of 4 kts. and partly cloudy skies. The Race Committee postponed, believing that a southerly would fill in. By 1030 the wind shifted to the south east at 6 kts. and racing was started on a trapezoid course to accommodate both the 420 fleet and the Keelboat Championship fleet. During the day the wind steadily built to 8-10 kts. with oscillating shifts of 5-10 degrees. By late afternoon the breeze was very steady, so racing starts were extended to take advantage of the ideal conditions. A total of 4 420 A and 4 420 B races were run races on a W4 course, along with 8 keelboat races. The evening bonfire featured a little intermittent rain, but was well attended by several teams. All in attendance had a good time visiting with each other.

Sunday, October 6:

Sunday racing began with an 6 kt. north west breeze, and clear skies. During the morning the wind slowly diminished. After a keelboat start, the 420 A fleet got in a w4, but with only one keelboat race to go, there was not time to run a second. 420 B fleet was rotated in for the last race of the day for 420's. After finishing 420 B and Keelboat, the RC called it a regatta. There were 10 total races run over two days of sailing. The Banks Blackwell Perpetual Trophy was claimed by the overall best team of Spring Lake this year.
