Three FDs competed in ideal sailing conditions Saturday. Temperature 78 F with reasonably steady southerly winds 8 to 12. Carl Boller and Jeff Barbero took 4 straight firsts to win the 2018 Cuspidor trophy. Willem and John Henry Light-Olson turned in an amazing performance in their first FD regatta, finishing a very close third place in 3 races as well as capsizing 4 times. Capsizing 4 times enabled them to capture the gremlin trophy that migrated to Cazenovia Lake from Monomomac Lake. This was Willem’s second time sailing their FD. Tom Lewis and Andy Mistur finished in second place. We raced 4 olympic course races Saturday until the wind began to build beyond our comfort level. Sunday was a beautiful day temperatures in the high 70s. The down side was the wind was a shifty southerly breeze of 5 to 15 with frequent gusts (blasts) 22+. So we all stayed ashore. Many thanks to Al Marshall and the WBYC yard staff for running an excellent regatta. We will be here next year, so block out the 20th and 21st of July 2019 to sail in the Cuspidor.
