2014 NAC Day 2 Ben2014 NAC Day 2 Frank G

Another glorius day on Barnegat Bay and we could not have asked for better conditions.  With south winds at a steady 10 knots, we had a 5-leg Windward-Leeward race and at the end of the race, the Championship and Challenger Divisions were established.  We had one general recall and 2 boat over early in the 2 divisions, but there was very little contention, if any, on the race course.  So far, no protests!  The winners of today's races were Jeff Linton and John Luard.  As we start the finals, the top 5 skippers in the Qulifiers were Jeff Linton from Davis Island YC in FL, Larry Taggart from Southern YC in LA,  Mark Taylor from Davis Island YC, John Luard from Monmouth Boat Club in NJ and Roger Sharp from Massapoag Yacht Club in MA.  Watch here for updates as the week of racing continues.

Results of Qualifying series is here

2014 NAC DAY 1 Tow2014 NAC DAY 1 Back in

A fantastic day out in Barnegat Bay near Seaside, NJ!  We were lucky enough to witness some of the 200+ Junior Olympians racing as well.  Toms River members towed us out to the course with 6-7 boats being pulled by some of the power boats.  WIth a mostly East wind at 6-8 knots, we had 2 super Windward-Leeward courses, and had a really nice, leisurely spinnaker run back in to the Club.  After 2 races, the top three are Jeff Linton - FL, Mark Taylor - FL and Larry Taggart - LA.  Several boats are close behind so tomorrow's 3rd Qualifying race will be very interesting.  See results to date here.  And next we will be treated to a pig roast, courtesy of the cooks at the Club.

All measured in, business meetings concluded, skippers meeting done, and Flying Scot Sailors were ready to party tonight!  Toms River Yacht Club put on a wonderful welcome party tonight in the newly renovated dining room!  With a neighboring yacht club hosting an event at the same time, we'll be racing farther out on the bay than usual.  Our hosts have made arrangements to tow us all out to the race course so we are ready to go at the first gun and not too tired from sailing out to the course.  We look forward to a super day for racing on Monday 7/21 with an East wind at 5-10 knots predicted. Results will be posted here daily!
