•  CIYC 34th Annual Women Skipper's Race – Saturday, August 9th:
We thank all participants for making this year's WSR another success! This race handed nothing on a silver platter, though, demanding the 'other kind' of exhausting skillset. A fragile, elusive breeze and a hungry, adverse tide lurking in the return leg combined to create a traffic jam of all four divisions, complete, at the windward mark. At speeds ranging from 'are we going backward?' to a quarter knot forward, the extrication process took quite a while... with no shortage of lively communication.
All women skippers and their crew remained undaunted, with winners emerging... eventually.
"Plain Jane" provided pumping music at the post party, and Ricca Auto Body sponsored the pumping beer.

•  CIYC 61st Annual Day Race – Sunday, August 10th:
Again, we thank all participants for making this year's Day Race a great regatta! Conditions this day were clearly bitter... er, better! Wind speed doubled to a patchy, shifty 3 to 6 knots as racers criss-crossed the Sound in this 10-miler (Thanks to the RC for their short course selection!). Holes, voids and tides provided numerous opportunities to ply one's boat-handling, strategy and tactics skills. And what Long Island Sound Light Air Day Race would be complete without the perpetual, boat-stopping chop produced by myriad pleasure craft out on a nice Sunday? It all combined to create a challenging day for crews, frequent lead changes, and those at the helm routinely going below muttering to themselves...
Regardless, all competitors were resolute to the end and winners did emerge:
