Ahmanson Cup 2009 – Newport Harbor Yacht Club

April 18th and 19th, 2009

 

 

What a weekend of racing in Newport Beach, CA at Ahmanson Cup for the Farr 30 Southern California Fleet!

Day 1 tested all of the tacticians and sailors abilities with light and shifty wind conditions topping no more then 6 knots.  The race committee was able to get off 3 races for the F30 fleet with a tie for first place between Monica and Marc Skipwith’s “Clockwork” and Steve Brown and Rhonda Tolar’s “Wild Thing”.  However, the other boats were not far behind so going into Day 2 was any boats game and the F30 Fleet definitely stepped it up!

 

Day 2 could not have been better conditions for the F30 with winds topping out at around 18 knots.  The racing was fierce and in the first race there were three boats all finishing at the same time piling up at the pin end, it was One Design racing at it’s finest!  Steve Brown and Rhonda Tolar’s “Wild Thing” were on their game and finished the regatta with top honors.  Way to go “Wild Thing”!
