January 18 Bandit 22 LTE regatta at Nantucket Yacht Club

An unusually small turn out for tonight’s regatta but we had fun and some very close racing. The Blake was well behaved and no interference from tourists made for pleasant racing.

In the first race all three boats were close with Justin holding a small lead. On a tack he fouled Gemma and lost the lead taking a penalty turn. From there on out it was Gemma and Justin neck and neck for almost the whole course with the lead changing several times. Gemma managed to prevail on the last two legs to win.

Justin established an early lead in the second race and held on while Gemma and Heather fought hard with Heather eventually besting Gemma for second place.

Race three saw skippers taking different paths to the first mark, Gemma and Heather tacking earlier then Justin. The wait paid off for Justin saving two tacks establishing a strong lead leaving the first mark. Again Heather and Gemma fought it out with Gemma prevailing this time. Nick rode with Heather for the first two races and in a pleasent visit Kris Hollysharp rode with Justin in the third. I think we will be seeing more of her in the future and hopefully she’ll return to racing and RDing after a long absence. Crew has no effect on the performance of the Bandit 22LTE.

Wind was 190 @ 17 kts, V2 and G3.
