Fontelieu Classic winners Josh Goldman and Lynne Petrocelli
On an unusually warm and summerlike weekend in late September, Cedar Point Yacht Club in Westoport CT hosted 22 Thistles and 10 Flying Scots in the 2014 Fontelieu Fall Classic. Saturday brought us some fair winds that got us out on the race course on time with hope of getting in at least one race, given that the forecast for Sunday was little to no wind. Although the wind did wane a bit during some of the racing, we did get in 3 races for the Flying Scots and 4 for the Thistles. As was predicted by the PRO DIck Thackaberry, in the first race the wind started from the northwest and shifted on the downwind leg to a more northeast breeze. In the next 2 races, the breeze stayed about the same. After the day's racing, local Josh Goldman was in the lead, John and Connie Eckart from Massapoag Yacht Club were second and Brian and Brian Hayes from Milford were third.
