From J/22 HOOD champions Anne Lee & Sean Davis:
Seven J/22s participated in the recent HOOD Regatta hosted by HYC. Weather conditions varied from no wind, wind, rain & storm. Saturday’s racing started with a very light shifty Southeast wind building to approximately 6 -9 kts. from the South. The fleet was very competitive with boats changing positions at almost every mark rounding, resulting with very close finishes. The day ended with Helms a Lee and Dov’s ‘No Name’ tied for first place.
Sunday started with almost no wind. A light breeze finally filled from the West and the Race Committee was able to get one race off. Again the wind was very light, shifty and was non-existent the down-wind end of the race. Helms a Lee struck lucky with an occasional puff and floated into first place, with ‘No Name’ in second and Tom Meeh placing third overall in the Bethancourt’s ‘Chicken Dinner’.
Thanks to the Race Committee for doing a good job and to HYC for the after race food and entertainment.
