Racing Season off to Spectacular Start

Spectacular weather conditions graced Sandy Bay as the Hilary Smart Regatta ushered in the 2007 racing season. Nineteen boats, representing all four one-design fleets, were out on the water over Memorial Day weekend as the season got off to its strongest start in years.

On Saturday, summer-like temperatures and westerly to northwesterly breezes made Sandy Bay the place to be and although Sunday’s winds from the east and southeast were somewhat cooler it was still a glorious sailing day. On Monday, the early morning rain and clouds had cleared out by noon and the warm, steady southwesterly made for comfortable but fast sailing on flat water.

Here are the racing results by class:
