2010 Kennedy Cup to Maine Maritime

2010 Kennedy Cup.

The wind gods continued to bestow great conditions on Annapolis and the nine teams vying for the 2010 Kennedy Cup. It was another day of shifty NNW breeze ranging between 15 and 22 knots and sparkling sunshine albeit a
little chilly.

Maine Maritime started the day with a comfortable seven point margin over Cal Maritime and 12 over Navy meaning that it was going to require some divine intervention for things to change. Maine showed that the only thing divine
was their sailing prowess as they handily won the day's first race sealing their national championship victory and leaving Navy and Cal Maritime to scrum for second. Navy finished second in race 9 while Cal Maritime struggled with a fifth opening the door for Navy. However, in the final race, Cal got a great start winning the favored left side and cruised to an easy win securing second overall while Navy finished sixth to retain third overall.


Congratulations to Maine Maritime on an outstanding performance and for earning the right to represent the US in the 2011 Student Yachting World Cup next year in France!

A huge thanks to the NASS Race Committee headed by PRO Wayne Bretsch who stayed ahead of the shifty conditions all weekend long and also to our panel of judges; chairman Dan Trammell, Dick Morin, Mike Brownlee and Maureen Mills.

Final Scores:

1. Maine Maritime
2. California Maritime
3. Navy
4. Coast Guard
5. Kings Point
6. Mass Maritime
7. NY Maritime
8. Army
9. St. Mary's
