2019 Roar At The Shore

Postby Skip Hall » Mon Apr 22, 2019 3:37 pm

This year’s regatta is a one-day event as we’re hosting a R2 Championship Soling 1 Meter Regatta on Sunday. This will be a one time try, next years will go back to the usual 2 day regatta. The NOR is posted in both the EC12 sailing schedule and the AMYA schedule. One change to the NOR is we’ve changed the cutoff date to May 8th as there’s only six skippers registered to date:

Domenick Bonanno
Dave Ramos
Ray Szulczewski
William Ewing
Roger Baldwin
Dave Branning
Fred DeSantis
James Betz
Scott Graf
Victor Oberg
Dave Brawner
George Glenn

We understand it’s only a one day regatta this year and for some it’s a long trip for just that class, however, if you so desire, we could provide Solings if you decide to sail in that regatta. Let’s make this event as much fun as we’ve had at the Liberty Bell, Tilghman Island and Annapolis!!!

We’re up to twelve registered as of May 3rd, a nice size fleet. Still missing some of the regulars, I know Don Barker is Sailing in the IOM NCR in Oxford so we’ll surely miss him. There’s a chance we could have the younger Ramos attending, look out Dad!! So keep this one on your schedule, it’s setting up to be another Great Regatta!!

A picture perfect day greeted 14 skippers, Saturday May 18th ,at our 2019 R2CR EC12 Roar At The Shore#5 Regatta. The wind direction started out of the NNE at 6-8 mph and temperatures in the mid 70's. A truly chamber of commerce day! We began sailing promptly at 10:00am to sail as many races as we could since it was a one day regatta. We sailed sets of 3 races and took a short break in between. As the morning progressed the wind began clocking to the right to become ESE and finally settled into our preferred direction, SE at 8-10 mph. From the start it would become a three horse race between Dave Ramos, Dave Brawner and Jamie Betz, with Scott Graf and Dave Branning closely following for top five honors. At lunch time we reset the course to reflect the change in the wind direction and didn't move it the remainder of the day. As the afternoon progressed the top five would remain the same, Ramos, Brawner, Betz, Graf and Branning. After 13 spirited races we called it a regatta and began totally the results. With a throwout every 6 races we ended up with 2 throw outs. There would be a tiebreaker for second place between Dave Brawner and Jamie Betz, with Dave winning due his 3 bullets to Jamie's 2 bullets. Scot Graf finished fourth and Dave Branning finished fifth.

This regatta could not have been the success it was if not for the race committee, Jerry Franko- scorekeeper, Harry Mote- mark setter, Judy Bonanno-our official photographer- lunch, Michele Sysyn-lunch & Karen Ann Hall- lunch. Job very well done everyone!! Everyone is looking forward to next years regatta and hoping for the same wind and weather...
