Fall Series Week 1

October 8, 2018 10:39:28 AM EDT

Sunday, October 7th was the first week of the 2018 Fall Series.  With many local sailors up in Newport, RI, for the Optimist New England Championship, a small, but dedicated, group of Optis raced in the series. 

There were 6 very competitive Laser Radial sailors racing on Sunday.  Based on the scores, it looks like there was some very close racing!

Thank you to the DeFonzos, Cindy Botwinick, Alex Rogachenko, and all other volunteers for their help!

Noelle Donnelly, who finished 2nd overall in the Opti fleet, wrote a nice review of the racing:

The first day of the 2018 fall series was a beautiful day for racing. The sun came out after the second race.  It was warm and a really fun experience. The wind wasn’t shifty or very challenging, it was actually perfect.  The wind was out of the SW and it was 5-10 knots where we were sailing.  There were 11 Opti sailors and 6 Lasers.  Many local Opti sailors were in Newport, RI for New England’s so it was a much smaller group than usual.  The race committee did a great job running the 6 races.  As always, thank you to Mrs. DeFonzo and Mrs. Botwinick for doing the registration and scoring.  We can’t wait for next week!
