Annapolis, MD, USA, September 22, 2019

The 2019 US Masters & Frigid Digit is a wrap! Augie Diaz/Lexi Pline sailed consistently fast to maintain the lead all three days of the Masters. Jim Bowers/Julia Rabin squeaked in over Peter & Connie the last day to win the tie-breaker for second. The Commettes took third, followed by Gavin & Holly O’Hare and Henry Filter/Sandy Westphal. Augie/Lexi and Jim/Julia were also 1st & 2nd in the Frigid Digit, but Gavin & Holly had a great day Saturday to move up in the FD scoringto take 3rd. Evan Hoffmann/Shira Golub were 4th and Peter & Connie rounded out the top 5. (Scoring note/explanation: 8 races were sailed in total. 2 Masters Only races Friday, 2 Combined Masters/FD races Saturday + 2 FD only, and 2 Combined Masters/FD races Sunday)

In the Divisions, Jim/Julia were the top Apprentice Masters, Carol Cronin/Kim Couranz were top Masters, Augie/Lexi were top Grand Masters and Lanny Coon/Gus Wirth (with a combined age of 142!!!).

Thanks again to all the Sponsors who stepped up to help us pay the bar tab and to all the Fleet 532 volunteers who helped make it all happen. It takes a village to run a successful Snipe regatta! Finally, thanks to all the competitors who made the effort to come to the regatta, with folks traveling from California, Florida, Ohio, Massachusetts, New Jersey, Connecticut, Pennsylvania, Virginia, and even an international traveler from Canada.
