Great Minnow Recap by Frank Kersting

The 2015 Great Minnow is ‘in the books.   There was excellent membership participation with 8 cruisers and 3 dinghies registering for the 2-day regatta.   On Saturday, the northerly winds were constant at 9 MPH which was excellent for racing but made holding the committee boat in position problematic.  Needless to say, it was an ‘eventful’ day of racing with 5 races started.  On Sunday, the winds were the ‘typical’ light and variable type but sufficient for 3 races.  The results were:

Cruiser                                                Dinghy

1.  R. Hatcher                                          D.Sturm

2.  K. Klarer                                             J. Brownfield

3.  L. Huddleston                                     B. Klarer

A large crowd for dinner participated in the festivities, as there was a membership meeting following an eventful day of racing. The sailors were tired but gladly shared ‘tall tales’ with those members joining the crews for dinner.
