NESSA Fleet Racing Championship (O'Day Trophy)


Sunday, April 17:

Overnight the breeze in Narragansett Bay dropped from 22-30kts to a 0-10 kts on Sunday. PRO John Mollicone wasted no time in getting the 16 teams racing and started at approximately 10am in 8-10kts from the NNE in Brown University's Z420 fleet. The breeze held up for most of the day and began to diminish around 2:30pm but still sailable. The fleet was postponed from 4-4:30 but the Northerly provided another gasp allowing the final B division race to start and finish. 7 races were completed in both divisions. It was a beautiful day with families joining us on the dock with the start finish line 100 yards off the docks at Edgewood Yacht Club. Thank you to judges Greg Kiely, John Pratt and Peter Johns. No protests were heard, however, numerous Rule 42 violations were penalized on the water. Congratulations to Tabor Academy for winning the O'Day Trophy and qualifying for the National Fleet Racing Championship to be held at College of Charleston May 13-15, 2016. Joining Tabor at Nationals are St George's School, Milton Academy and Brunswick School. Finisher's 5-12 have qualified for the new NESSA/MASSA Intersectional to be held May 14-15 at Sail Black Rock home of Sacred Heart University and Fairfield University Sailing. Congratulations to Cape Elizabeth, Moses Brown School, Falmouth HS, The Hotchkiss School, Cape Cod Academy, North Kingstown HS and Portsmouth Abbey.
