To all Captains,
Thank you all for supporting Summerset. Based on the radio chatter I believe that everyone had a great time and the sailing competition was the right mix of fun and fierce.
Attached are the results.
First, the Lou Tilley Classic cruising race on Sunday was won by Gopher Baroque – Jason Pim and family. See attached for the rest of the results.
Next, thank you to all the racers that came from Tampa, Punta Gorda, Naples and Marco Island. It’s exciting to see the fleet out on the water on such a beautiful weekend. The drizzle on Sunday kept all the sunscreen in the lockers – perfect!
- Obsession once again won the Spinnaker class, followed by Pendragon then T-bone
- Non spin was won by Mae-B, followed by Eroica then Essence
- And Cruising was won by Castaways, followed by Serendipity then No Name.
Special shout out to Castaways who absolutely crushed the pursuit race on Sunday (5 minutes ahead of the next boat) moving into first place. Their boat also won the loudest, the most cheering, and the best dancers. Nice Tri was racing for the first time and came close to winning the most cheering making an excellent effort on Saturday, but were outdone on Sunday when the committee could hear Castaways coming four minutes before crossing the finish line.
The pursuit race is amazing – The starts are staggered starting as early as 10:00 and as late as 11:48. Yet 12 of the 19 boats ended up finishing within 10 minutes of each other.
I want to thank all of you for your support and the fun times we have had. As I said on the race course, after four years as racing commodore I am stepping away. We are going to start a sailing adventure and take the boat north to the Erie Canal, the Trent Canal, and into Canada and Georgian Bay.
from Captain James – Rear Commodore of Racing
