Fall Series Week 4

October 23, 2017 10:59:15 AM EDT

Week 4 of the Toms River Yacht Club Fall Series started slowly with a wind delay.  Light air set a slow tone to the group as sailors anxiously hoped to get out and race.  By about 11:45 AM, a soft 5-7 knot breeze filled in and allowed 22 Opti sailors and 4 Laser sailors to head out on the course for the day's racing.

 

Five triangle races were sailed for the Optis, and once again, Ryan Ehnot worked his way to the front of the fleet.  With a strong opening sequence of 4 bullets, Ryan managed a 7th in race 5 to take the overall, no-drop, win.  Ben DeFonzo and Teddy Martin (top White fleeter) were hot on his heels with consistent scores themselves.  The top three sailors were pretty punched, but Gabby Fontana (top Blue fleeter) lead the next chase pack, finishing 4th overall.

 

In the small, but competitive, Laser Radial fleet, Tyler Mowry was able to win all 6 races on the windward-leeward courses.  His speed and conservative tactics helped place himself at the top all day long.  Quinn Collins and David Manley had a back-and-forth battle for 2nd and 3rd that ultimately went to Quinn.  Peyton Kliesch is spending time on the water each week to improve, rounding out the Radial fleet.

 

Thank you so much to Alex Rogachenko, Brett Byer, and Matt McKenzie for running the Race Committee.  Ted Martin was on the finish boat, and Amy DeFonzo is making a strong case for MVP this season with both registration and scoring duties.

 

THANK YOU to all the parents and volunteers, and thank you to Toms River Yacht Club for their continued support of Junior Sailing.
