20th Anniversary C. Thomas Clagett, Jr. Memorial Clinic and Regatta - Overall

by Sam Crichton 26 Jun 23:22 PDT June 21-26, 2022

After two days of the coaching clinic and three days of competition, the sailors racing at the 20th Anniversary C. Thomas Clagett, Jr. Memorial Clinic and Regatta have congratulated their fellow sailors as they received the silverware in recognition of their results.

Thirty two sailors from across North America and the Caribbean, representing 10 states and territories and three Canadian provinces, have participated in the 20th Anniversary C. Thomas Clagett, Jr. Memorial Clinic and Regatta which started with five boats in 2003.

It has evolved into a multifaceted organization providing opportunities and programs for sailors with disabilities enabling sailors to Reach for Success while they Learn-Race-Win, Learn-to Reach for Success, Race-in the Corinthian spirit, Win-self-empowerment.

In the twenty boat 2.4mR class it has been lead from start to finish by Julio Reguero (San Juan, Puerto Rico) whose scorecard had four first places in the 10 races the fleet completed. Reguero, a Paralympian who sailed in the 2008 and 2012 games, is also a recipient of the 2.4mR boat he is sailing from the Clagett Boat Grant Program.

As a result of his win in the 2.4mR class, Reguero has qualified for a place on Team Clagett. The inaugural team will represent Clagett Sailing at the 2.4mR World Championships in Tampa, Florida in November.

Finishing in second place in the 2.4mR class is Tony Pocklington (Ft. Meyers, FL) and rounding out the podium is Canadian Peter Wood who has traveled from Ottawa to attend numerous Clagett Regattas in Newport.

Reguero said after he was awarded the trophy for the 2.4mR class, "I feel very happy with my results from the racing this week. I'm looking forward to the Clagett/Oakcliff Match Racing Clinic and Regatta in September and learning match racing skills. I'm very proud to be selected and part of Team Clagett who will be at the 2.4mR Worlds in Tampa Florida later this year."

Reguero was also awarded the C. Thomas Clagett, Jr. Memorial Trophy which is the third time he has won this trophy. He has won it in the 2.4mR class at each event in 2009, 2016 and now in 2022.

The Martin 16 class win went to the defending trophy holder Californian Carwile LeRoy, who was sailing with Tannis Hall from Mont Tremblant Canada for the last three days. LeRoy won this class in 2019 and 2021 and now for a hat trick. LeRoy's result was a single digit as a result of his multiple first places across the finish line over the last three days of racing.

"The sailing gods smiled on me today, I found something magic in Newport. I did things I've never done before in my sailing career here in Newport. I'm on cloud nine it's always a good time to go out sailing. Our coach Dave Dellenbaugh gave me a compliment "I'm a lot like the tortoise than the hare, something happens on the course and I just keep going. It was fantastic to sail with Tannis as my crew, Canadians are such nice people," commented LeRoy after claiming his third title in the Martin 16 class.

Finishing in second in the six boat Martin 16 class is Patrick LoDuca (Chicago, Ill) and Jeff Long (Newport, R.I.) who sailed for the first time in a Martin 16 on Wednesday. LoDuca has attended six Clagett Regattas, the first five in the Sonar and now the Martin 16. Long was a sailor at the very first Clagett Regatta 20 years ago when he sailed with Steve Anderson.

"Carwile certainly has got the Martin 16 figured out. It was a great challenge being in the boat for the first time. To me this regatta is about the camaraderie, the competition keeps you sharp both mentally and physically. I usually sail here in the Sonar with the Judd Goldman program who supported my participation here this week," said LoDuca after racing.

Joining Reguero on Team Clagett will be his fellow 2.4mR sailors Charlie Rosenfield (Woodstock, CT), Peter Eager (Toronto, Ontario, Canada) Delani Hulme-Lawrence (Saint Paul, Alberta, Canada), and the alternate team member is Chris Childers. Team Clagett consists of the top three scoring 2.4 mR competitors with a disability, plus the next highest scoring 2.4mR Clagett Boat Grant Program recipient competitor and an alternate member is named. The team will be managed by Clagett alumni sailor Brad Johnson himself a Paralympian in multiple sports.

"In this the Clagett's 20th Anniversary year I have so many people to thank, our amazing sponsors Fiduciary Trust International, AIG, Gustave White Sotheby's, One 80 Intermediaries, Innovative Construction, the Kimball Foundation and Aukai Spirit along with all the fabulous in kind sponsors, the volunteers both returning and new who have traveled from across the world to be here this week we thank you for your time and dedication to the sailors, to our world class coaches and race management teams thank you for providing the very best for the sailors here this week. A special thank you to our bosun, Gene Hinkle, who has been at every Clagett Regatta. At this regatta this year we have present 12 people who were here at Sail Newport 20 years ago when we had five boats racing at the very first Clagett Regatta," said Clagett President and Co-Founder Judy Clagett McLennan.

She continued, "In 2022 as we celebrate 20 years of providing opportunities to sailors with disabilities we have rebranded the organization to Clagett Sailing and we have added to our mantra "Learn, Race and Win." Our mission, to provide sailors with disabilities the opportunity to improve their skills and reach personal goals through world-class coaching and competition, is evidenced by the ways our sailors: Learn...to "Reach for Success!"- Race...in the Corinthian Spirit - Win...self-empowerment. We look forward to what the future holds and will always strive towards our mission and vision "to provide sailors with disabilities the opportunity to improve their skills and reach personal goals through world-class coaching and competition" and "to be the leader in developing competitive sailing opportunities for sailors with disabilities."
