Sail-World.com : McMillan Cup at Navy overall
McMillan Cup at Navy overall

Sunday on the Chesapeake brought more typical fall conditions for the McMillan Cup with a solid 8-12 knot northwesterly breeze and clear sunny skies.

After a brief postponement, PRO Keith Jacobs got racing underway. Mass Maritime started smart jumping out to a substantial lead that they would not relinquish to get the gun, Navy recovered from a poor start to nail a second while regatta leader NY Maritime also came back from a poor start to take fourth.

For the fourth race, the oscillations and puff/lull sequence continued.

Navy stayed in phase to punch out ahead and led wire to wire for the bullet while Mass stayed close to grab second and KP taking in third. For the fifth and final race, a five leg course was designated with the top four spots all truly up for grabs. Navy, KP, NY Maritime and Mass Maritime jumped of the line as the breeze stayed in a right phase. Mass rounded the top mark first and remained up front to win the race. Navy passed NY Maritime on the first run and then covered the rest of the race to take second with NY in third. KP finished fourth.

In the end, Navy squeaked out a one point victory over Mass with NY Maritime just one point further back.

There was one request for redress by Coast Guard in race 5 which was granted and one request for breakdown points by Army which was also granted.

Our sincere thanks to all the volunteers who helped make this year’s event a success including PRO Keith Jacobs and his RC staff, Chief Judge Dan Trammell and his jury and the NASS social committee who served all comers from both the McMillan Cup as well as the Fall Keelboat Promotional Regatta.

Navy dedicated this year’s regatta to long time Navy volunteer coach Bill MaClay who passed away earlier this fall. Sixty years ago in 1952, Bill won the McMillan Cup as skipper of the team from Williams College. Bill’s family was on hand and his son Jim helped present the trophies today.

Next up at Navy is the Kennedy Cup 2,3,4 November.

Results:

1. Navy 6,2,2,1,2 13
2. Mass Maritime 3,7,1,2,1 = 14
3. NY Maritime 2,1,4,5,3 = 15
4. Kings Point 1,3,6,3,4 -17
5. Coast Guard 4,6,3,4,4.25 = 21.25
6. Maine Maritime 5,4,5,6,6 = 26
7. Army 6,5,8,7,4 = 31
8. St. Mary’s 8,8,7,8,8 = 39
