Bobby Berliner Midweek Firefly Regatta


Thursday, April 25:

A spectacular sea breeze welcomed the sailors to the Wood Sailing Pavilion for the Bobby Berliner Midweek Firefly Regatta. Bobby was a very active sailor in his day and did a tremendous amount of volunteerism to make the Firefly Class in North America very successful. There were fleets everywhere and the Firefly was in the Olympics twice as a solo sailed boat with jib.

Racing started with nine boats and expanded to fourteen as the evening went on and more boats joined in the fun from the Northeastern practice. Charles Lindsay and Maaya Prasad won handily with very aggressive starting and hard hiking in the front of the boat. Julia Wyatt and Liz Obermeier challenged them but couldn't quite reel in the red boat.

Many thanks to David Alfonso, MIT assistant coach, and that barky Lucy Charles for helping out.
