Ida Lewis Tune-up Regatta

Spins up

The Ida Lewis Yacht Club hosted a races this Weekend for any one who wanted to practice before the Worlds. The line up was:

N80 Elisabeth X
US112 Ranger

There were three races. The classic wooden boats raced along side the modern boats.   There was a great deal of waiting for the wind to come up as we all ghosted around each other sometimes launching into short practice runs when there was a puff from the North.  Finally the breeze filled in a little from the South.  The first two races were in very light breeze and the last one had a touch more juice.  How did TOTEM do? 1st then 3rd and then 1st.  TOTEM’s first official win since being restored.  Well done TOTEM.
