2016 Governor’s Cup results

Thanks to all participants of the 2016 Gov’s Cup.
After an interesting wind shift just before the start requiring a quick change of race course, the fleet headed to the weather mark under light conditions, bright sunshine and rolling swell . On the leg up Likety Split (LS) took a commanding lead rounding the seabuoy ahead of TeeSou, Red Sky and Achilles Heel. The rest of the fleet was marking each other… After some hesitation the 2 leading boats got their full canvas up (spinnaker LS and asymmetrical TeeSou) and at the reaching mark, Likety was 100 yards ahead of TeeSou, 200 ahead of Red Sky and 250 of Achilles Heel. Rounding the last mark, spinnaker and asymmetrical went down for an exciting finish, 5 seconds for LS ahead of T ( 1/2 boat length) as Annick kept her asymmetrical a little longer. Third boat crossing was Red Sky followed shortly by Achilles heel.


As the conditions lightened, the 2 last boats ( Breck and Brad) retired from race 1. After a consultation with the skippers, RC decided to send the cruising fleet home while the racing fleet had an opportunity to square off with a second shorter race . R2: TeeSou won the start and the 2 boats sailed on the left side of the course to counteract the outgoing tide before reaching the weather mark rounded by Annick ahead of Jeff. Spinnakers went up and Teesou jibed back and forth to the finish with plenty of time to spare. For this short version of the Gov’s cup , Achilles Heel won the cruising division while TeeSou won the racing and overall Governor cup…. Congratulations to Al and crew, Annick and Julian
Next outing July 16th , weather permitting
