In Division 1 (Spinnaker) first place honors went to Gossip (Captains Kenny and Ames). Scoot (Captain Jim Vos) took second place and Purple Haze (Captains Oldak and Kalish) finished third.
White Lightning (Captain Jim Smyth) took first place in Division 2 (non-Spinnaker).Â Impromptu (Captain Sean Leary) finished in second place and Wave Equation (Captains Dinsmore and Worthing) took third place.
June 3 began Breakwater’s 2009 Summer Series with Wednesday night races held until September 2. All races are governed by the U.S. Sailing Association’s Rules of Sailing. Races are run in Shelter Island Sound with a starting time of 6 p.m. A yacht’s best scoring for 70% of the races is used to determine Summer Series results. Prizes are awarded for 1st, 2nd and 3rd place in each division.
