An unusual NYYC Spring Regatta

The America's Cup Charters l2 Meters racing all came through the Regatta unscathed, but it was a very unusual weekend of racing.  3 dismastings, several collisions, atleast two groundings plus the craziest finish that anyone has ever seen (about 100 yachts all decended onto the finish line at the same time) on Friday's Round the Island race - made for a calamitous weekend of racing.  For our fleet Intrepid beat her rival Courageous, finishing second to Victory 83 in the Modern Division while Weatherly edged out American Eagle in close racing to win the Classic Division.
