Northeast Harbor Fleet IOD solo race for the Commodore Hessenbruch Trophy
Sunday was a fun day to be on the water, with lots of wind and sunshine with temperatures around 68 degrees. Two longer courses were set as the RC had their hands full with a big fleet of cruising class as well as seven IODs sailing solo. Everyone had a blast and made it back to the mooring safely.

Northeast Harbor Fleet Cruising Class MDI Series for the Carol Haaland Trophy
A downwind start from almost Q to the East Bunker Ledge buoy was followed by some very exciting wipeouts in the puffy cold front breeze blasting out of Somes Sound. There was a long upwind battle with Far Out, Lynnette, Ranger and the wily Fleetwing. Coming around Greening Island counter-clockwise, the cruisers passed by the IODs going in the opposite direction. There was more exciting action downwind on a trip to Bowden Ledge and then east of Islesford to Harding Ledge. Fleetwing was having so much fun that they went on by Bowden Ledge and had to come back upwind. Everyone was tired out after the 4-plus mile windward leg back to Gilpatrick Cove with the current ebbing hard. Congratulations to Sidewinder, which flew all the nylon in Sunday’s Race 4.
Top 10 after 4 races: 1. Far Out, 2. Sidewinder, 3. Lynnette, 4. Ranger, 5. Fleetwing, 6. Watermark, 7. Dreadnought, 8. Woodie, 9. Scarlett BEE, 10. Iris
