Weatherly wins in Nantucket!

 Congratulations to Weatherly winner of the 2019 Opera House Cup and Nantucket Race Week l2 Meter Division!   Nantucket Race week enjoyed good moderate sailing conditions in which the women's "Echo" team won all 4 races to clinch the l2 Meter Division.  With the Echo Syndicate's l2 Meter sailing experience and George and Herb onboard it was a winning combination!

Sunday's weather for the Opera House was however, not ideal.  After a long delay due to lack of wind, the breeze finally arrived. Captain George Hill and tactician Gary Jobson nailed the start before turning the helm over to charterer Elliot Gewirtz who steered them onto victory.  Weatherly won The Opera House Cup,  took 1st Place in the l2 Meter Division, 1st Place in the Elapsed Time and Corrected Time categories in the 50 boat fleet, finishing her five races of Nantucket race week with five first place finishes.
