Our first Blue Lagoon Marina Regatta of April saw a nice turnout with some smooth sailing. Marcy, the owner of Blue Lagoon Marina, also chipped in L$1000 for first place in the small boat race. The small boat race also featured a slightly different wind, WSW (250°) instead of our usual SW (225°), which it returned to for the big boat race.
The small boat fleet was really diverse this week, made up of three bandit IF’s, a Quest Melges-24, a Quest 2M, a Nacra 17, a Wildwind DG-14, a Trudeau Patchogue II, a Trudeau T-12, and a Shields Class. The fleet spread itself out pretty well although Cole and Arya were close through out the race.
The big boat fleet was made up of two ACA33’s, two Trudeau 12 Metre’s, two One Design 65’s, and an Open 60. Racing was neck and neck between Makhno, Arya and Beane throughout.
