In a tough light air and shifty day of sailing on Oyster Bay against a solid 57 boat fleet, JC Hermus finished 2nd Overall to Matt Logue of Riverside YC (CT). Being the top NY’er in the fleet allowed him to repeat at NY State Champion, though I think he would rather have won the whole regatta. SailStrong Sailors had quite a day with 4 in the Top 5, 6 in the Top 10, 10 in the Top 20, 2nd and 3rd in Red Fleet, 1st through 3rd in Blue Fleet, 1st through 3rd in White Fleet, and 1st, 3rd, and 4th place Girls. It is great to watch the group keep pushing each other to better results while continuing to have fun.
