Spring Regatta has a little bit of everythingTue, 20th Apr 2010
By Chris Winnard
The 2010 Puget Sound Spring Regatta was held April 17-18 hosted by Corinthian YC. 70 boats participated on two courses.
CYC came under some criticism when the class breaks were posted but ended up shuffling P1 and 2 into more logical groupings that produced much better racing.
Saturday's racing saw most classes get in five races in light to medium southerly breeze. The rain came in during the last race, which took a toll on the after race gathering numbers (and bar receipts!). Sunday was a beautiful NW spring day, unfortunately there was no wind. The South course fleets got one fluky race in with the North course getting skunked. The real race ended up being to the hoists!
Ullman powered boats did well as always but most noteworthy would be Marty Godsil for winning P10 in his Thunderbird 'Invader'. Marty is in his 70's and has dominated the Thunderbird Sound racing with his Ullman Sails One Design inventory. Congrats Marty!
