The HMYC hosted the 2017 Soling Region 1 Championship Regatta on Saturday September 23 and the event was a great success. We had 22 skippers and great weather. The wind was somewhat erratic and varied quite a bit but there was reasonably good wind all day. We managed to get in 18 heats of which 12 races were scored for each sailor that allowed two throw outs. We used the CESSpool pool selection system with great success to schedule all the races. Everyone caught on quickly and we got lots of heats in. In the end Colin Mosgrove from the Minuteman club took the regatta with a great day of sailing.
This was also the Annual Region 1 Interclub championship of which three clubs had the requisite minimum of three representatives. The HMYC, Minuteman Model Yacht Club and the Stowe Yacht Club battle it out with the HMYC team winning the day.
Many thanks to the race committee of Ron Rhault (RD), Mary Goebel & Ken Bauser (Scoring) , Bob Olah and Rick Goebel as mark judges and all those who pitched in to help without which regattas like this could not happen. Congratulations to all that competed and the top four finishers were
- Colin Mosgrove
- Bruce Nourjian
- Don Hain
- Fred Goebel
