080, 1.75nm – Course 5
The fleet is off to a clean start! Swing with a great start shooting out almost a boat length ahead as the fleet heads upwind and left for pressure!
Congratulations Northeast Regatta champ – John Porter on Full Throttle!
Fleet under AP. No wind and heavy fog on the course… it’s expected to burn off… shortly.
Race committee is optimistic there will be at least one race. Breeze is building. Visibility on the increase.
We are still under postponement…
Ninkasi and Arethusa neck-and-neck to the gate!
32s are going racing again NOW!
Celeritas, Heartbreaker and Sled are OCS!
Q way left for pressure on the first beat.
FT with a huge lead, fumbled the set. roXanne and Volpe catch up.
Full Throttle takes the lead by a length ahead of roXanne. Wild gate rounding! Breeze up around 6-8.
Major showdown at the mark! roXanne slides in first, Full Throttle second and Argo third.
Q hot off the pin again but way left. Right side looks better for pressure. The entire fleet is tight!
