Ryan Richards (Tufts) Alumni Regatta


Saturday, May 28:

A perfect day for the Ryan Richards Tufts Alumni Regatta. Wind began SW 3-8 and was a bit shifty but persisted left to a steady South 8-13, "dam breeze," right up the valley. At times the wind was steady 12 with one inch waves. Six races in each division were held from 11:15 to 4:45. "A" division was for the classes of '76 to '04 and "B" division was for the classes of '08 to '15. A number of undergrad crews filled in.

In "A" Matt Cohen/Ariel Fromer Babcock broke a tie with Pete and Caroline Levesque with double bullets in the last set to win. Will Haeger/Paula Grasberger dominated "B" with double bullets twice. Sam Altreuter'76 racing in many consecutive alumni regattas was Tufts first college sailor-of-the-year.

Brand new Whitecap Turbo Larks were the star of the show and the Bacow Sailing Pavilion provided space for all including a line of spectators on the 70' third floor observation deck.

At the awards Gifford Tubbs'80 spoke eloquently about former sailing master Joe Duplin.

Many thanks to co-chairs Lucy Robison and Aaron Klein and to the many undergrads that helped with race management, scoring, rigging, cooking, etc.
