Busy bay

How busy was your bay this past weekend?

Annapolis, MD - For the east coast, the weather curtain is quickly closing, so this past weekend on Chesapeake Bay was like last call at the local tavern. The Melges 24 North Americans held the lion share of interest, but there were several other events that attracted broad interest too. Competing for space to set race courses was Storm Trysail Club's IRC East Coast Championship, where a total of 35 boats competed for wins in four divisions. For the thriving J/22 class, their East Coast Championship had been cancelled in September during the approach of Hurricane Hanna, with the rescheduled event last weekend won by Todd Hiller. Not to be outdone, the local J/105 fleet, which a year ago had hosted the 2007 North American Championship, held their traditional end of season Chesapeake Bay Championship won by Peter McChesney.

AYC along with SSA also hosted the MASSA (Mid Atlantic Scholastic Sailing Association) fleet racing championships. The top high school teams from New York to Virginia competed for their fall championships. Scores can be found at: http://www.toad.net/~mariners/massa/massa.htm
