2015 Newport Regatta

2015 is the third year in recent history 2.4mRs have raced in the Newport Regatta hosted by Sail Newport. Once again we got off a lot of short races where a good start and boat on boat tactics were the order of the day.

Newport’s typically reliable winds were fighting a Northerly early on Saturday and kept us waiting on the water after the first race.  After an hour or so Newport’s fans starting turning and we were able to complete eleven races in two  days.  Dee Smith once again led the way winning ten of eleven races.

Dee Smith continues to dominate US events during his campaign to the 2016 Paralympics in Rio. Eleven races and eleven bullets in three days of racing during the 13th Annual Clagett Regatta. Dee’s enjoying a new challenge and applying knowledge gained during his continuing career as a professional big boat sailor to racing the 2.4mR. To paraphrase Bill Shore once again coaching 2.4mRs at this year’s Clagett, “Dee doesn’t make any mistakes. We’ll be watching from the coach boat and saying ‘he should tack’, and Dee tacks”.

Good Luck Dee!
