Breeze on at Sunfish North Americans
Published on June 29th, 2017
Blue Point, NY (June 29, 2017) – Alonso Collantes (PER) leads a 72-boat fleet on Day One of the Sunfish North Americans at Sayville Yacht Club. Winds started at 15 knots but gusted to 20+ as the afternoon wore on.
Sailing in heavy air with waves and chops from all directions simulating a washing machine action proved to be a challenge for everyone out there. But some sailors met the challenge head on and kept finishing near the top of the fleet.
Collantes finished the day with a 2-1-1 (4 pts) after three races. In second place is Paul-Jon Patin, Sayville Yacht Club, with a 1-2-5 (8 pts). With 10 pts and 4-4-2 finishes is Rich Chapman, USSCA President/ Lake Bluff Yacht Club. Doug Kaukeinen, Rochester Canoe Club, is 4th with 10 pts and 3-7-4 finishes (14 pts). Martin Willard, Carolina Yacht Club, is 5th with 23 pts and 6-5-12 finishes.
