ISSA Team Racing Championship (Baker Trophy)


Saturday, May 25:

The Baker Trophy started off with a wind delay and SailMaine’s Turbo 420’s did not leave the dock until 1100. However, everyone enjoyed Chris Robinson’s homemade breakfast sandwiches which made the wind delay a little less painful. The wind started to fill in as 6-8 knot southerly breeze under mostly sunny skies. PRO Ron Hopkins and his crew did a great job to constantly adjust the course as the breeze shifted to the left and increased to 8-12 knots.

The day ended with two full round robin’s of 66 races completed and racing ending near 1900. The fleet of 12 teams was then broken into championship groupings of Gold, Silver and Bronze.

Sunday, May 26:

Competitors arrived Sunday morning and met with cloudy skies. The breeze built from the south again but very unstable 4-5 knots after a 1 hour delay. The race committee constantly adjusted the course to keep it square. Competitors saw races with the wind coming from the south, south east, east, north and then back to south east. Gold fleet raced a double Championship round and a single round for Silver and Bronze ending the day with 36 races in challenging conditions.

After starting the event with 2-3, Christchurch got hot and went 11-1 only losing the final race of the event after having sealed the championship.
