Sail-World.com : Annapolis to Newport Race 2011 a challenging journey

Annapolis to Newport Race 2011 a challenging journey

'Annapolis to Newport 2011'    © Mark Duehmig

Annapolis to Newport Race 2011 is one of the most historic and well-known of the U.S. East Coast blue-water races. Racing started on 3rd June.

Overnight and in to the morning hours, 15 boats have crossed the finish line and headed to their berths for a hot shower, bed rest of the non-rocking variety and possibly a cup of coffee or something a wee bit stronger.

The first to arrive on 7 June, IRC II competitor Reindeer with a finish time at Castle Hill of 00:15:31 followed just two minutes later by Irie, the first of six J/120s competing in PHRF I. Between 02:24 and 0800, 13 additional boats finished including a couple who 'drifted over the finish line' and were happy to have completed a 'very challenging journey'.

Pat Tucker, crew on the Naval Academy’s Farr 40 Seawolf, reported upon finishing this morning that on 4 June at 23:07 they had a close call with a fishing vessel and although they hailed the vessel and shined a light across their bridge, they had to alter course to avoid a collision.

At 0900 Skipper Mark Rickey on Capricious called the A2N Sailing office to alert us that they were retiring and that during the night they turned back from their current heading to tow Roust, a PHRF Cruising competitor who had retired on 6 June and had recently lost power and were concerned about a lack of navigation lights. Capricious towed them close to Cape May, New Jersey where they felt comfortable safely continuing on their journey.
