Down East Challenge Results

Big congratulations to Scott on Resolute for taking first place on elapsed and corrected time overall, including the fully crewed boats. In a close second and third were Jeroboam and Panacea with corrected times within 12.5 minutes of Resolute. As Peter on Panacea put it "A vindication of the PHRF system of rating dissimilar boats if there ever was one."

After a tactical blunder early on at Cape Ann, I'm happy to have battled back into second place. Scott and Peter sailed a great race so it was an honor to be up there with them.

I'm hoping to race with this group again at the Maine Rocks Race on September 16/17. For those interested in participating, contact Doug Pope at Rockland Yacht Club in Rockland, ME. This will be the fourth running of this race and it always draws a very accomplished crowd of single and double handed boats, the only two divisions offered.
