2012 New England’s Official Results
If you missed the 2012 New England Champs you missed a good one!
Paul Gervais once again found us all a great sheet of ice on outer Mallet’s Bay and Mother Nature was kind enough to provide light to medium breeze. There was a bit of light snow in the ice but insert runners and full sails were the combo.
Eric Anderson, in addition to his many duties as commodore, did some work on his boat and got her going well enough to take third. Chad Atkins was moving well in the light stuff to take second and Greg Cornelius had enough of an edge to take first. Racing was close with many lead changes and close finishes all day long.
Bob Crinion and Art Samson made it down from Nova Scotia, Dave Fortier tested the water (no harm to boat or skipper- thanks to Chad for providing the main-sheet to pull him and his boat out), and we had Peter DiPrinzo and his girlfriend Stephanie on hand shooting video, pics, and writing an article about the regatta- Better yet, they kept score! Many thanks to them for that and we look forward to seeing the pics and finished article.
Many laughs at dinner at some pizza place I can’t recall the name of- Safe to say a good time was had by all! Thanks to everyone who made it possible.
Stay tuned for the next regatta….
