2013 Punzi Memoral Regatta at Candlewood YC, New Fairfield, CT - Day 2

Roger Punzi

Roger Punzi, in whose honor this regatta is held, would be thrilled to see the number of boats that came to this regatta!  He was an avid Flying Scot sailor who supported the fleet for many years.

Day 2 on Sunday 10/6 brought pouring rain and 10-12 knot winds, 4 guest boats we're still at the regatta, but two of those decided not to brave the elements.   In the end we ran two races with 8 boats on the line with Roger & Kate Sharp from Massapoag walking away with first place honors, John and Connie Eckart from Massapoag took second and Candlewood's own Corey Loke came in third. People tell us they enjoyed the hospitality and will be back.  Fleet 24 is rebounding and this was our first attempt at putting on a sanctioned event in many years.  To receive such great support from neighboring fleets and individuals in the region really speaks to the quality of the community of folks who race this little boat.  Candlewood Yacht Club would like to extend a hearty thank you to all who supported this event even if the sailing was not what we had hoped for If your ever in the area please stop by and say hello and perhaps we can find some better wind than we had on Saturday.  Thanks again -CYC
