Report by John Snow
First, please note Yellow Highlight from original email: VM skippers can participate in MMYC's American M (AM) season racing as well. Also, US VMYG's Classic VM designs (from the VMYG 2019 update) will become part of our local VM fleet going forward. Consider these to be M50/800 designs from AMYA's 1980s era. I will note this in the Bill Full VM Cup Regatta (Saturday, June 25) entry form at Redd's Pond in Marblehead.
AM #2 Club Race held June 4 with once-around course involving eleven race heats with one throwout. Sunny skies, steady NE sea breeze and 70 temp. Mix of Modern M designs (3) with 1935 VM design ("Madcap") by Boston MYC member. (Scorer was John Snow.)

Here are the results of the American Marblehead National Championship regatta sailed on
Ten sailors showed up to compete in the four divisions of the class.
The day was bright and the pond was clear of algae and long weeds.
A shifty Southerly breeze (for the most part) of 1 to 12 was encountered.
After a skippers' meeting conducted by Class Secretary and club Commodore Biff Martin was held
racing began a bit past 10:00 am. Special thanks goes out to Charles Dyson who acted as scorekeeper
and to Peter DeWolfe who manned the rescue boat to adjust the starting line prior to racing as well as to rescue a
disabled yacht during the regatta.
Sixteen heats were completed and there were three throw outs allowed.
Another special thanks goes to Cheryl Emmons who organized a wonderful lunch for all concerned.
