Norway in the Lead on Day One

Thirty-two teams headed onto Narragansett Bay for day one of the 2018 Snipe Women’s World Championship. Two races were sailed in a light and puffy northwesterly breeze coming off the land, which made unexpectedly lake-like sailing. Sailing incredibly consistent was the reigning Women’s World Champion, Brazilian Juliana Duque sailing with Marina Arndt. The pair won the first race, but were disqualified in the second.

Norwegians, Melsome-Myhre and Krefting, battled to win the second race of the day and lead overall with 6 points.

Briody Memorial Regatta

Thursday, 16 August 2018 07:25

Rochester, NY, August 12, 2018

The 2018 Briody Memorial at Newport YC

The Briody began this year on a very somber note, as long-time Fleet 103 member Phil Morse had passed away suddenly just one week earlier. In his honor, Regatta Chair John Dentinger gathered attendees to commemorate Phil's sailing career. Phil's sailing accolades were followed by a moment of silence for remembrance and prayer.

Once again, turnout for the regatta was excellent, as NYC hosted boats from Canada and Massachusetts besides our locals: 14 boats total. The weather could not have been more cooperative--a prevailing northerly on Saturday allowed for 5 races, even with our traditional hour-long break for lunch. The battle for first was intense, with Julian Inglis & Angela Vascotto in front by 7 points over Harri Palm & Molly Kurvink, tied with Max Hetherington-Young & sister Audrey.
