Fall Series Week 2

October 16, 2018 9:31:22 AM EDT

Sunday, October 14th was the second week of the 2018 Fall Series.  Very light winds plagued the Toms River, but a persistent race committee was able to sail a few races for the eager sailors.

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


Maggie DeFonzo, a local Opti hero, wrote a nice review of the racing:

15 Opti sailors and 4 Laser sailors participated in the 2nd Sunday of Fall Series. After an hour of postponement, the race committee was able to complete 3 Opti races and 4 Laser races in very light and puffy conditions. Temperatures were back to normal for October at 50 degrees and sailors had to search for streaky puffs coming down the course.  It was important to be on the line with speed for any chance of a good race due to the conditions of the day. Even though the wind didn’t cooperate, both fleets had a great time and the top finishes were very competitive with Johnny Donnelly taking first for the Optis and Quinn Collins for the Lasers! Big shout out to my mom and Mrs. Botwinick who did scoring and registration and Max Achtau, Alex Rogachenko and Brian McCann who were a great race committee!
