The Storm Trysail Club's Ted Hood Regatta provided the fleet of J/70 and J/105 one-design classes, plus PHRF classes, great sailing over the three-day event, despite the challenging weather conditions.

Hosting the fifth annual event from August 19th to 21st was Eastern Yacht Club, in conjunction with their amazing local partners- the Corinthian YC and the Boston YC.

J/105 Class

The J/105 class saw Ric Dexter's BROUHAHA simply eclipse the fleet with straight bullets in five races. Similarly, Miguel Martinez's TAINO posted mostly seconds to grab the silver with 12 pts. Then, rounding out the podium was Marty Galligan's ATALANTA.

J/70 Class

Unlike their J/105 colleagues, the nine-boat J/70 class was a "shoot-out at the OK Corral" between the top five teams, all finishing within five points of each other. Winning by a point was Dave Franzel's SPRING. The balance of the podium was determined by a tiebreaker at 23 pts each.

Winning the countback for the silver medal was Rich Witzel's ROWDY over Pearse Dowd and Daan Goedkoop's LOCOMOTION, who had to settle for the bronze. Just one point back from them was Bill Lynn's KEY PLAYER with 24 pts. And, rounding out the top five was Jim Raisides and Charlie Pendleton's BAD HOMBRES with 27 pts.

PHRF Division

In the seven-boat PHRF 2 Division, Liz Smith & Ward Blodgett's J/33 SIROCCO took the silver with a consistent 3-3-5-1-2 tally for 14 pts.
