Spring Series Week 4 Results

May 1, 2017 1:39:22 PM EDT

Sunday, April 30th was the fourth and final TRYC Spring Series for 2017.  Sailors were met with temperatures in the 60s and a building 10-15 knot breeze out of the East.  The Race Committee set up Windward/Leeward courses with a short reach finish and six races were sailed to complete the series.

 

In the 28 boat Optimist fleet, Charlie McKenzie - just back from representing the US at the Lake Garda Regatta in Italy - enjoyed the puffier conditiions by stringing together some bullets and taking the overall win for the day.  Ryan Ehnot had some solid finishes early in the day to finish a close second.  Ben DeFonzo, who seemed to always have his boat in the right spot, rounded out the top three, just losing a tie breaker with Ryan.  It was really close racing at the top of the fleet.

 

Blue fleet was once again won by Everett Botwinick who's making a point of winning his age group.  Everett had to work hard, though, with Pilar Cundey and James O'Gwen hot on his tail.  Pilar sailed an awesome last race to win by a big margin; the smile on her face when she crossed the line could be seen all the way from shore.

 

Teddy McKenzie was back in the White fleet again and put together a strong series to finish 10th for the day and win his division.  The hard-working James Kopack and the always-pleasant Harrison Hubbard rounded out the top three in White fleet.

 

It was amazing to watch all of the Opti sailors compete yesterday.  You can really tell they've been working hard all spring, and they will be that much better off in the summer for the hard work they put in during the off-season.

 

Everyone wants to beat Leo Boucher in the Laser fleet.  You know you've sailed a good race if it does happen because it is so rare.  Leo is fast, smart, fit, and a very savy racer.  In typical Leo-fashion, he had four 1sts and two 2nds to win the day.  Tyler Mowry strung together a consistent series (including beating Leo twice!) to take second for the day.  Jamie Paul, who's attended every week with success finished 3rd for the day in the 10 boat fleet.

 

Nicole Moeder raced in the Laser Radial, but she forgot her drain plug.  In a last ditch effort to sail, she wedged some paper in the opening to prevent water from coming in.  Spoiler alert:  paper doesn't prevent water from coming in, and sailing without a drain plug isn't fast!  Nicole found that out pretty quickly and had to call it quits before the last race.

 

Payton Kliesch has been racing every weekend, and improving every day she's on the water.  Despite sailing a 4.7 against all radials, Payton had some really nice races and was always in the mix.

 

Only one 420 showed up today, but that didn't stop Declan Botwinick and Brooke Schmelz from joining in to race the Lasers.  The finished mid-fleet in most of the Laser races, but they dominated the 420 scoreboard with all first place finishes!  It was very good practice to go out and put the spinnaker up and down.  Good job for getting out there!

 

At the completion of the series, sailors and parents headed upstairs at Toms River Yacht Club for the awards.  Gill generously stepped up this week to provide some really nice rash guards, buffs, hats, and other prizes.  The sailors loved the candy and glasses from TRYC that club member Casey Mundry prepared for us.  As always, we are so lucky to have the support and hospitality from Toms River Yacht Club to host our Spring and Fall Series.

 

Cindy Botwinick and Amy DeFonzo made sure everything ran smoothly on shore, once again manning the Registration and Scoring desk.  These ladies generously donate their time to make sure everyone else has a fun day on the water.  THANK YOU.

 

Mike Dowd, head CERT Opti coach, was on the water moving marks and giving out advice to all the sailors.  Many parents also jumped in to launch and retrieve boats, patrol the course, and help out when needed.  It truly is a team effort to run such a great event.

 

Finally, thanks to Alex Rogachenko for doing anyting and everything to make sure the series runs smoothly.  He grabs marks, helps on the RC boat, herds the sailors for the skippers' meeting and awards, and will genuinly help with anything that's asked of him.  Thank you, Alex!
