NESSA Singlehanded (Healy Trophy) ILCA 7


Saturday, September 24:

Racers arrived to find a gusty but dying northwest wind. Six races were completed on a windward-leeward start and finish in the middle course. The line was closed and no one was caught off guard by that. Shifty conditions kept the racing close. In the ILCA 7 class, the top two started to separate themselves from the others, but the battle for third flip flopped through the day. In the ILCA 6 class, the top three also started to separate themselves from the pack.

Sunday, September 25:

Sunday dawned with a building southwest breeze that was forecasted to build all day ahead of front pushing through the area. Six more races were completed in each division a windward-leeward start and finish in the middle course. In the ILCA 7 class, Ben Shepard '23 (Brunswick School) pulled ahead throughout the day and Wyatt Bischoff '23(Tabor Academy) established himself in silver medal position, but the battle for third went down to the final races, where Sam Riley (Martha's Vineyard RHS) edges out Jake Demos (The Prout School). All three qualified for the Cressy.

In the ILCA 6 class, Cal Kinnear '25 (The Hotchkiss School) won the final race and beat out Jack Bolton '23 (St. George's School) on the tie breaker. Conrad Straden '24 (Darien HS) was the third qualifier for the Cressy.

Hyannis YC was an excellent hosts, making the sailors and spectators feel welcome. Thanks as well to the Race Committee (Judy Quinn and MK Mezzetti) and the judges (Brent Jansen, Mike Hersey, Matt Hersey, Richard St Onge, Bil Abbott).
