2.4 Meter Clinic Regatta at Sandy Bay Yacht Club - Mr. Green builds a picket fence

by Shan McAdoo 12 Jul 2022 13:46 UTC July 11, 2022

Ted Green came home to his childhood club and picked up right where he left off, winning. The lovely quaint club house has tons of trophies from days gone by, some of which have Ted's name on them already. He added his name to another trophy this weekend.

Eight 2.4 meters sailed a three day clinic/regatta out of Sandy Bay Yacht Club (SBYC). During the clinic we followed up on Dave Perry's teachings during the Clagett Regatta with an emphasis on starts. The winds were light and variable starting with a northerly that would eventually give way to a sea breeze. Principle Race Officer Stephen Ouelette and his on the water team kept working to assure that the seven races run were fair and competitive.

The results after racing showed Ted Green's dominance. He threw out a bullet. Shan McAdoo wound up in second, with John Seepe in third.

SBYC and Rockport were amazing hosts, the club and the sailing venue were as always perfectly suited to 2.4 meter racing. The shoreside activities included an amazing Surf and Turf dinner, lovely continental breakfast and apres sailing munchies. Rockport Brewing Company was kind enough to provide a generous sampling of their Whale Cove and Jetty Juice Ales. Cape Ann Coffees provided great coffee and foods during the event.

With more than 1/3 of the fleet disabled, the 2.4 meter continues to affirm its utility as the right boat for sailors with disabilities. The second and third placed finishers got out of their boats and back into wheel chairs.

The organizers want to thank Commodore Sarah Wilkinson, Ron Petoff, the staff and members of the Sandy Bay Yacht Club, and the sailors who took the time to travel to our little sea side town. Ted Green came from Newport RI, and John Seepe who came from Senora, NC.
