Saturday, October 22nd: In the morning, the teams arrived to a 20 degree drop in temperature in the fifties with wind speeds of 20 to 25 mile an hour winds coming out of the West and a driving rain. It was questionable if the regatta was going to take place. The long-range forecast was not positive. We tried to sail in the morning with the winds reaching 22 miles an hour. The winds were steady 23. Out on the racecourse we had multiple capsizes in all the races. We had a least four boats over at all times during all the races. We did sail two A races and two B races before the committee of Paul Coward and Mike Spark decided to cancel for the day. The winds increased to 27- 35 mph. A grand total of four races were sailed and some of the teams went over to visit Seaside for the afternoon on the boardwalk.
Sunday, October 23rd: Today the teams arrived to warmer temperatures with winds blowing 15 miles an hour at the West. We quickly got out on the water and got the first race off by 9:30. With the progression of the next six races the wind velocity was steadily increasing and the wind speeds somewhere between 22 and 23 miles per hour by the end of the A rotation in the sixth race. The wind speeds topped 25 mph. With no sign that the wind was going to subside and with a head injury to a sailor it was time to end the regatta. Most of the teams had a great time and enjoyed the winds at the upper end of the scale. Congratulations go to the Villanova Wildcats for winning the last Club Championship Regatta. They sailed very fast and stayed upright. Congratulations to Stevens Ducks for coming in second and Penn Quakers for coming in third. Thanks go to the OCC sailing team for providing breakfast and lunch for everyone. I'm sure everyone enjoyed the Viking dogs and the bagels. A huge thanks go to Toms River Yacht Club for allowing us to use their facilities and to the race committee, Paul Coward, Phil Gauntt, Maggie Marrow, June Kingman all the OCC sailors who worked so hard to make this a great Regatta.
