2011 Don “Doc” Fellows Results
The Doc Fellows Regatta was held on Snipatuit Pond in Rochester MA. We were
lucky to get the regatta in the books as the weather was not cooperating.
Snow moved across New England late in the week, making a site selection difficult.
We did finally make the call for Snipatuit Pond; thanks to Doug Sharp and the
Eastern MA sailors for scouting the lake.
The weather wasn’t promising as a high had settled in- light and variable winds
were the order of the day. The first race was abandoned after two laps and a
long wait ensued. Later the wind did fill in and we were able to squeeze in
three races before the day was out.
Chad Atkins and Greg Cornelius seemed to have an extra gear and split first
and second in the first two races. In the final race Chad was able to get his
nose out front to take the race and the regatta.
Many thanks to Henry Capotosto for keeping score and to the competitors for
showing up and not giving up when the breeze didn’t look too promising!
The regatta this year was dedicated to the memory of Don Kent. Thanks for everything
Don! Fair winds…
