Solid breeze at Storm Trysail Fall Regatta


25 October 2016

5 The Chesapeake Station of the Storm Trysail Club once again closed its season of racing last weekend with the Annapolis Fall Regatta, and once again brisk fall conditions gave great racing to participants in three classes: Farr 30’s, C&C 30’s and two sub-class groups racing using ORC handicaps. The format of a long distance race on Friday followed by traditional windward-leeward races on Saturday and Sunday gave all teams the chance to enjoy a good variety of racing in the 3-day format.

The 25-mile distance race was sailed in a perfect 12-16 knot southerly, with warm sunny conditions making for a perfect mix of beating, reaching and running around a race course set around buoys in the mid-Chesapeake, finishing under spinnaker in the Severn River. This race was actually scored as two races, with the first being based on times taken at a scoring gate about 2/3 distance from the start and counting as 1.0 points, and the final complete lap being scored as 1.5 points.

Jim Grundy’s high-speed Dunning 42 Baby Bella made her competitive debut here exactly one year ago, and this year led the fleet around the course to an elapsed and corrected time victory in both race segments, thus taking the early lead in the ORC Class over runner-up Ian Hill and his new XP-44 Sitella. Interestingly, even while being broken out and winning their own sub-class of ORC sportboats, Mike Beasley’s GP 26 Rattle N Rum was only 10 seconds behind Sitella in corrected time after three hours of racing. Later the same day a strong cold front brought clouds, cooler temperatures and a wind shift to the northwest, with this breeze building on Saturday to 25-35 knots, prompting PRO Dick Neville to cancel racing for the day.

Sunday brought the sun back along with a solid 16-22 knot southwesterly breeze, and in three windward-leeward races the teams with no breakdowns and better boathandling were rewarded. In the Farr 30 Class reigning World Champion Rod Jabin and his team on Ramrod pulled off what would have been a perfect clean sweep of the class were it not for Peter Toombs from Prince Edward Island and his Canadian team on Farr 2 Tangley taking victory in Race 4 and the runner-up position in the class.

Extreme 2Dan Cheresh and his Extreme 2 team exerted the same dominance in the C&C 30’s, winning all but Race 4, with Kip Meadows roXanne in second in this class’s wrap of their first complete season of racing. Next stop for them will be Storm Trysail’s Quantum Key West Race Week.

And in the ORC Class it was Sitella taking advantage of breakdowns and mistakes made by their rivals to win among the big boats, with Rattle N Rum managing to win every race among the Sportboats. The next stop for Sitella will also be in Key West, where a larger group of 40-ish foot rivals await on the scratch sheet.wise loop around Sicily, which introduces numerous ‘corners’ that present changing and complex meteorological shifts.
