Congratulations to American Eagle!The Nantucket Yacht Club's 12 Meter Regatta was held August 13th and 14th in trying wind and sea conditions. The first day of racing saw high Northeast winds gusting into the upper 20's. Only the four boat Traditional Division competed, sailing two races with American Eagle winning the day.
Day two saw the opposite conditions, a real drifter that allowed only one race to be sailed. It was a photo finish between Nefertiti and American Eagle. Sears Wullschleger and crew aboard Nefertiti won the race, but American Eagle, well sailed by Linda Green and her all female crew, won the regatta overall. Our congratulations to the race committee and all competitors who helped to make the regatta a success, despite the difficult sailing conditions.
