Spirit of Redd’s EC12 Regatta hosted by Marblehead Model Yacht Club 08/05/2017 by Jack Woods

            Seven skippers ignored dire weather predictions and showed up to compete at Redd’s Pond in Marblehead, MA.
Three skippers were from Massachusetts, one from New Hampshire, one from Vermont, and two from Connecticut.
Hats off to those who came from out of state to participate.
            The wind was out of the SW between 3-7 knots and as the break for lunch approached the drizzle turned to a more steady rain.  A lunch of sandwiches, chips, drinks and cookies was set up in the small pond side clubhouse and the rain intensified.  After consulting available technology on various phones it was decided by the RD and the Commodore that afternoon racing would not occur.  Twelve morning heats were scored with two throw outs and the results were:

Place     Skipper            Points
1.           John Skerry      13
2.           Don Ouimette  15
3.           Biff Martin       32
4.           Rick Gates        33
5.           Al Schober       35
