This week’s race results (July 5):

            Tuesday night Ensign Series: Black Ice took the night with 2 bullets (wins) to start the July series. One Love took 2nd for the night followed by Brou Ha Ha.

            Wednesday Night PHRF: A beautiful night for racing and five new entrants started in the expanding B Class. Former ORR Sail Team members Copper Newton (who sailed this race singlehanded) and Sam Harris along with Will Stark, Ryan Keenan and Paul McLaughlin join Class B to add some young blood, not to mention good competition. However, it was veteran racer, Ed Sargent and the crew of Voyager that took the win. Second went to Ryan Keenan in Strider, and in third place was Charlie Smith’s Chickadee.

            In Class A, No Quarter Given returned to their winning ways followed by Robb Ryan (another new entry this year) and his crew in Restless. Third went to Don Ross and the crew of Coconuts. Don had moved up from B Class this year.

            This weekend, the crew of Dennis McLaughlin, Rick Warren, Meaghan Girouard and Jim Gallagher won the Newport Regatta Ensign Regional Championship. The nine boat, four race series provided stiff competition. After the first day with three races sailed, Hambugler held a slight lead over the fleet with MYC’s other entrant, Brou Ha Ha tied for second with two other boats. Brou Ha Ha’s crew of Steve and Tina Clark along with Marshall Bailey and Matt Ferlotti unfortunately lost in a tiebreaker after the second day of racing and finished fourth only 3 points out of first place.
