American Marblehead 2019 NCR

2019 American Marblehead National Championship Regatta

The NCR began with a very light Northeasterly breeze with a receding fog over the pond.  Thirteen skippers from four states participated, some of which were former national champs and AMYA Hall of Famers.  Racing prior to the lunch break was at times very trying, as the breeze would sometimes all but disappear.  Patience, and steady thumbs paid dividends ultimately.  Racing after the break picked up in intensity as a decent breeze filled in more often than naught.
Boat designs sailed included Madcap, Sun Wind, Spot, Sylvan, Starkers Squared, 110, Cumulus, Assassin, Pinter 2.0, Pinter 2.5, and Pinter 3.0.
Early designs were often neck and neck with more modern ones and were a tribute to the magnificent Marblehead class.

Special thanks to RD John Snow, scorekeeper Rick Gates, and Al Fearn.
Lunch was served by Cheryl Emmons with great appreciation.

Prior to racing the American Marblehead Class had three new members join to keep the momentum going.  All in all a wonderful day enjoyed by all.

After the fleet racing was completed place results were broken out into the four design divisions:  VM , VM High Flyer, Classic, and Modern.
