2011 Spring Small Boat Regatta

2013 Fall Small Boat Regatta

Even though the fleet had only five entries, the winds were fair, the sun shining and racing fun. Three Raiders (2 Sport(s) and a Raider II, a Flying Scott and a Trinka 12 competed in four races on Saturday and two on Sunday.

The handicap rating of the first four boats was very close and so was the racing as shown in the results. The first two races on Saturday were in 5 to 8 kts of breeze favoring the lighter skippers. Later in the day the breeze picked up as did the chop in the river, which started to level the playing field.

Sunday’s races were delayed until a consistent wind direction and wind speed of more then 5 and were welcomed. The steady, moderate winds and smooth water favored John Drawe’s new Raider II edging out Duncan Mackenzie by one point for first. Note the fifth boat in the fleet, a Trinka 12 sailed by Raider and Trinka builder, Mark Johannsen. This was the first time a Trinka has competed in a Regatta.
