2015 US 2.4mr Midwinters

2015 2.4 Meter Mid-Winter Championship

December 8-9

Charlotte Harbor

Port Charlotte, Florida

The US 2.4mr Class happy to be at the Charlotte Harbor Yacht Club once again. Getting the boats down from St. Pete regatta just a few days earlier made the usual hustle bustle that happens each year here just seem part of the norm. Boats arrive on Monday and by Tuesday things were ready for the start of the regatta.

Charlotte Harbor day one saw a stiff breeze from the northeast. With the starting area set just west of marker three in the clearest air to be found for the race, competitors sailed a fast downwind leg to the start. The wind was up and so were the seas which made for a challenging course to test the competitor’s willingness to receive some spray of Charlotte Harbor.

Day two of regatta saw the wind drop off some to test the competitors skills in lighter breeze. Tony Pocklington, USA 3, showed how much his time spent in the boat this year paid off with accumulating 7 points to take first place in the regatta. Second was Charlie Rosenfield, USA 142, with 15 points. Peter Wood, Can 14, took the third spot. 4 Canadian, and 8 US boats competed in the regatta.  Click here 2015 2.4mr Midwinter results to see the full results.

There was fun to be had by all in the regatta. A big thank you again for crew put together to run the Mid-Winters for the 2.4mr Class.
