July 9, 2023 – Rockport Mass.
Rockport Massachusetts is a beautiful place. You might not know that if you you sailed there this past weekend. Pea Soup fog made sailing tough, but the Race Committee was able to get 6 races in over the 3 day event for the 14 competitors.
Day 1 conditions were a lovely southwester 15-20 knots challenged the 14 boat fleet. Three W/L races with a start-finish in the middle were completed. There were three different winners. The fleet was treated to a nice Lobster Rolls for dinner.
Day 2 dawned with pea soup fog. After a shoreside postponement the fleet went out for two light air races. Both races were W/L with a start-finish in the middle with different winners. Back ashore, the fleet was treated to a a mixed grill barbecue with a lovely peach cobbler desert.
Day 3 felt like deja vu. Fog postponement again. The fleet went out and got one race in between fog banks.
Congratulations to Johan Koppernaes, Rudy Trejo and Charlie Rosenfield for their podium finishes.
