NESSA Team Racing Tournament (Terk Trophy)


Saturday, May 18:

Racing started at 10:30 with the following conditions: temperatures in the low 50s, wind at 10 knots with some gusts up to 15 from the NNE, overcast clouds with some spitting rain. As the day moved on, the rain cleared although the overcast clouds remained. The full round robin of the first round, 45 races was completed by 15:00. Moving into the second round robin of 6 teams, 6 races were completed before the end of racing for the day at 16:00. One black flag was flown by an umpire in response to some unsportsmanlike salty language directed at a competitor.

Sunday, May 19:

The second day of racing started at 10:00 with similar, albeit drier conditions: temperatures in the low 50s, wind at 10 knots with some gusts up to 15 from the NNE, overcast clouds. The remaining races in the second round robin of the top six teams was quickly completed by 11:00. The final round robin of the top four teams proved to be quite competitive, with the outcome decided by the final two races. Congratulations to Greenwich High School for winning the Terk this year.

Events like these are only possible through the many volunteers that help out. Brent Jansen was the PRO, running starts very effectively. Andrew Nugnes was the CHUMP, assisted by several umpires, Mary Kate Mazzatti, Andy Nutton, Kristina Woods, Will Hurd, and Matt Voci. On Saturday, finishes were recorded by Russ Gasdia while Andrew Burr did so on Sunday. Scoring was done by Carl Zimba.

NESSA would also like to thank Hyannis Yacht Club for hosting us for the weekend. HYC is one of our favorite venues.
