Mission Bay, October 27-28, 2012. Doug Hart and Becky Nygren won the Carolyn Nute Regatta.

Regatta report by John Fretwell.

Day 2 of the 2012 Carolyn Nute Memorial Regatta saw light air and some significant shifts in the leaderboard! After a clean sweep of first places from the son/father team of Tyler and Chuck Sinks on Saturday, Sunday opened with a bullet by Dave and Barbie Tillson, with skippers Aine Fretwell and Randy Lake close behind. In the next race it was Doug Hart with Becky Nygren in first, with the top junior team of Scott Sinks and Daniel Ron taking second. Tension was building, but the wind was not, as the fleet waited in in postponement, wondering if a final race and dependent throwout would occur before 3:30pm deadline. At this point the junior teams of Ryan Hopps/Alexandra Fayer and AJ Reiter/Riley Gibbs were tied on points for the second Jr. Worlds berth, if the throw out came to be!

 

Race 6 was finally started in around 5 knots of breeze, with a few boats OCS at the pin. In his first event steering his own boat (29197 previously owned by legend Craig Leweck), Ryan Hopps closed with a bullet to secure a berth in Rio, 2013 along with Scott Sinks (5th)! When the numbers were crunched, the top four boats in the regatta were separated by a mere 4 points! Congrats to Doug Hart and Becky Nygren on a fantastic win, and to all 24 Snipe teams who enjoyed amazing weekend on Mission Bay!
