Beautiful day for a regatta

Hosted by the The Monmouth Boat Club, Fleet 157.

Cole Barney and Robert Ender won Sunday’s Bridge Race in Robert’s Flying Dutchman. Cole drove and Robert seemed to thoroughly enjoy crewing and making use of the trapeze (as seen in the pics above). Robert has been working hard to revitalize the Flying Dutchman fleet which had been dormant for many years at MBC. Proving it to be a competitive handicap racer can only help. Congratulations Cole and Robert!
Santo won the Sanderling class and the Cruising fleet results are currently under review. Hope to have them updated soon.
Thursday July 28 at 5:30 Jack Huntsman will give an informative workshop on steering, trim and balance or “ease, hike and trim”. A chalk talk will be followed by time on the water. All welcome.
Facing significantly more wind than last year, all MBC boats took second place overall in their respective fleets on Friday at Keyport Yacht Club (KYC). In the Green Optimist fleet of 12 sailors, Nicholas Cunha followed his great performance at Braveheart with a 1st and 2nd in two of the three races. Lauren Henkel took all seconds in the Red fleet. In their first 420 competition, Peter Winters and Nick Bouton overcame a challenging downwind leg of the first race to bounce back with three second places in the remaining races against 13 boats. Billy and JP did a fantastic job coaching and supporting the juniors.
Tuesday night started out promising but the wind just kept fading. Fortunately, PRO Les Hathaway managed to get one race in before giving up. It was a nice night on the water even if we had to paddle a bit to get back to the dock :).
Thom Lee won the race. Updated standings and finish times are available at monmouthboatclub.org/results.
Thanks to Jeremy Macan and Thom Lee for the photos.
With first places in two of the three fleets that they competed, the nine MBC juniors embraced threatening weather to excel at Rumson Yacht Club’s 18th annual Braveheart Optimist race. Topher Lucyk took top overall honors with two bullets in the Red fleet of the 12 sailors with Kimmy Winters placing third. In the Green fleet of 17 sailors, Gabe LePage grabbed first with Nicholas Cunha right on his transom placing second. Congratulations to all the sailors. And, a special thank you to the MBC instructors for their time and tutelage!
