Light Long Island Sound PHRF Championship at Storm Trysail Club

by J/Boats 25 Sep 2018 15:55 PDT 15-16 September 2018

The Storm Trysail Club and the Riverside YC were the hosts of the 2018 PHRF/ J/88/ J/105 Long Island Sound Championship.

Like their colleagues in the Great Lakes sailing the J/70s on Lake St Clair, the Long Island Sound sailors are accustomed to having complete "glass outs" for an entire day, or even days at a time! While Saturday was an overall non-starter for all fleets, Sunday at least produced two races to save the day for everyone.

In the seven-boat J/88 one-design class, it was Mike Bruno's WINGS that took the title with a 2-1 tally for three points total. Second was Bill Purdy's Whirlwind with a 1-3 score for four points. Third was class leader Iris Vogel and her New York crew on Deviation, posting a 3-2 for five points. Rounding out the top five were Justin Scagnelli's Albondingas in fourth and Ken and Drew Hall's Nevermore in fifth position.

The seven-boat J/105 one-design fleet saw a blitzkrieg from Randy Bourne's Strange Brew, winning with two bullets. Similarly, second was taken by David Price's Trifecta, posting a pair of deuces. Yet again, taking third with two "treys" was George Wilbanks' Revelation. The balance of the top five included Max Kalehoff's LAURA BEA in fourth and Richie Palmer's TOLO in fifth.

In PHRF handicap world, the Suny Maritime Sailing Team took third in PHRF 1 on their J/44 Charlie V. Then, in PHRF 2, Chris Ercole's J/109 Sweet Caroline finished third.
