Seal Harbor Yacht Club and Northeast Harbor Fleet Seal Harbor Regatta

It was a spectacular day for a scenic trip around the Cranberries on Aug. 9. The Luders Class sailors had quite a jump, and something must have swallowed the IODs. Quite often, luck is a factor in keeping the breeze or not during the circumnavigation. Domino had a huge lead and went south of Sutton on the sprint to the finish. Sidewinder went north of the island and didn’t seem to hit any of the usual doldrums on that side. It nipped Domino by 100 yards at the finish line off Gilpatrick Cove.

Top 10 finishers: 1. Tom Rolfes, 2. Ned Johnston, 3. Joe Weber, 4. Peter Ill, 5. Christiaan vanHeerden, 6. Mike Cook, 7. Bill Eacho, 8. Alec Gorianski, 9. Roberta, 10. Scott Hirsch

Northeast Harbor Fleet August Series for the Taormina Cup

A very tricky breeze played games of temptation and then rescinded the offer time and time again on Monday, racing to finish the August series. Scott Redmon and team of Gosling won the day with a couple of deuces and Live Yankee took second on the day, finding the throttle in the light shifty conditions. Congratulations on a fine but abbreviated August Series at the Fleet.
