Opti Sailor Jamie Lynch wrote the following update on week 3 of the TRYC Spring Series
The third Sunday of the 2018 Spring Series brought all sailors on Toms River beautiful weather and finally, a spring feeling. The temperature was a warm 60-65 degrees with sun and barely a cloud in the sky, putting everyone in a good mood. A calm morning on the river gave way by race time to a steady breeze from the east that built throughout the day to 7-12 knots. For the nine sailors in the Optimist fleet who raced on a modified triangle course, consistency was the theme for the day. Griffin Lapham, getting a final warm up before heading to Team Trials this week in Florida, converted repeated great starts and fast sailing into six bullets and first places in both the Red and Overall Opti fleets. Robby Fontana was not far behind, finishing with five second places and a third, placing him first in Opti Blue and second overall. Harrison Hubbard's five third place finishes gave him third place overall. Elizabeth Actau also came in first place for the Opti White fleet. The five sailors in the Laser fleet completed six races as well, starting with a modified triangle before switching to a double windward-leeward to lengthen the course. Michael Pinto led the fleet, followed by Lauren Ehnot and Quinn Collins to complete the top three places. Thank you to PRO Max Achtau, Race Committee Members Alex Rogachenko and Everett Botwinick, Scorekeeper/Registration Manager Cindy Botwinick, and the parents who helped out on land and on the water. And a special thank you to the Toms River Yacht Club for hosting the Series at their club.
