Disabled Regattas Draw Record Entries:
The 10th annual Robie Pierce One-Design Regatta welcomed a record 23 entries at this year’s event held June 1-3 at Larchmont Yacht Club (Larchmont, NY). An additional 7 boats competed in the Robie Pierce Women’s Invitational, also a record, on May 31. All racing was conducted in Ideal 18s provided by the organizers with appropriate adaptations.
During the course of the events, Western Long Island Sound threw its entire bag of weather tricks at the participants—pea soup fog to sunny, hot days, and winds ranging from 0-30 knots, but the sailors survived everything thrown at them.
