Chix Only Team Race 2013 Evan Cooke
The Chix Only Team Race 2013 was a success! The regatta had record numbers for the tenth annual celebration. It took place on Saturday, August 24 at the Harvard Boat House. Many thanks to Harvard and MIT for donating their fleets and space for the event.

The nine chix teams competed in a full round robin and completed a silver and gold round. The breeze was perfect with 5-11 knots and Charles' River shifts. The chix sailed 52 races in all and the competition was tight. The Vampire Puppies (Becca Dellenbaugh, Rachel Moncton, Emily Dellenbaugh, Janel Zarkowsky, and Tanya Cuprak) beat the RWU Hawks Peacocks (Amanda Callahan, Abby Preston, Rachel Perry, Breanne Baldino, Nikki Medley, Sam Bobo) in a tiebreaker for the win. Many thanks to the non-chix who served as Race Committee: Spencer Powers, Mark Rinaldi, and Evan Cooke!

Michael Marshall triumphs at J/22 World Championship
With a second place finish in Thursday’s only race, Mike Marshall, Todd Hiller and Luke Lawrence are the champions. Heading into the 10th and final race, Marshall and Chris Doyle were tied on points at 30. As the 41 teams arrived at CORK in the morning, the after effects of an overnight storm left breeze in the mid-20s, so the Race Committee postponed on shore.
