The Holmes Hole Sailing Assn. (HHSA) race. Sunday, set sail despite a small craft advisory due to a 20-25 knot southwest wind at the 10 am start.
Nine boats came to the starting area at red nun 6 outside the breakwater, all with sails reefed or shortened in the heavy breeze.
Mischief and Sara B retired before the start. Seven boats sailed the triangular course to red nun 4 at West Chop, then to green can 23 A at East Chop and back to red nun 6 in the harbor. The course was sailed twice. The first leg was a broad reach and run, primarily on the port tack. After jibing around the nun in high winds, the second leg was a beam reach on the starboard tack. The final leg was a beat to windward.
First to finish in the A division was Jerry Coe in his New York 40, Indian Summer. Second was Jerry Goodale in Stormalong. Roger Becker was third in Gloria. John Amabile in Solitude and Brian Roberts in Starfish were fourth and fifth.
The two B division boats, Magic Time and Myfawnwy, retired in heavy air.
With higher winds predicted, the race committee prudently cancelled afternoon racing.
