12 Metre North American Championship Weekend
Wow, what a weekend! Good racing and good celebrations were had. The 12 Metres were put through their paces with 2 days of racing North of the bridge in Northerly's and then Sunday 3 good races "outside" in RI Sound. For "bragging rights" a pursuit style race brought the 12's into the Bay with a colorful spinnaker finish off Ft Adams (that race was not included in the scoring). For the social events there was a wonderful cocktail party with 1964 and 1974 America's Cup footage shown and delicious dinner on Thursday at the Clarke Cooke House, Friday night a festive crew dinner at ILYC and on Sunday the celebratory award ceremony. Congratulations to American Eagle 1st in Classic Division and Intrepid 2nd in Moderns.
