Spring Series Week 1 Results

April 9, 2018 9:33:34 AM EDT

What a great first day of the TRYC Spring Series!  29 Optis and 6 Lasers braved the chillier temperatures to sail 6 races in a puffy/shifty Northerly breeze.

8th Grader Everett Botwinick wrote up the daily report below:

At the first installment of the Toms River Spring Series 2018, the sailors came back together after a winter of overseas and warm weather sailing to compete in a spectacular series of races. The race committee, composed of Clay Johnson, Declan Botwinick, Alex Rogachenko, and Max Achtau, rattled off six races at a blisteringly fast pace, which was a challenge in the 7-12 knot breeze. Lots of fun was had on the frigid water, and the incessant oscillations kept every sailor on his or her toes in their quest for the win. The coaches emphasized proper sail rigging on land and on the water and tactics when approaching the finish line; more specifically, not sailing parallel to the finish, as it can result in losing boats. Topping off the Laser Radial fleet were Lauren Ehnot in third place, David Manley in second, and Michael Pinto in the pole position. The top three finishers in the Optimist White Fleet were Drew DeFonzo, Cole Martin, and Christopher Small winning white. For the Blue Fleet, Teddy McKenzie, James Kopack, and Ian Lent emerged victorious. Finally, for the Red Fleet, Gabby Fontana, Everett Botwinick, and Ryan Ehnot rounded out the top three. Ryan clearly controlled the fleet for the day, as he had three bullets under his belt when the racing concluded. A special thank you to all the parents that assisted in getting all the sailors out for their first week back. And of course, this would never happen without the Toms River Yacht Club, which always provides a warm and welcoming home for Barnegat Bay sailors.
