Will Monts (SCYC) and Walter Gnann (BYSC) successfully defended their JY15 North American Champion status which they initially won at BYSC last year. This year’s event was held at the Stamford Yacht Club in Stamford, CT. The Monts/Gnann team finished 13th overall in a fleet of 23 boats. Wind conditions over the three day, 12 race event were quite heavy. Saturday was particularly windy with wind speeds over 30 knots. Several boats sustained minor damage, and two boats were destroyed after being blown onto a nearby rock jetty and abandoned due to safety concerns for the sailors. Fortunately there were no serious injuries and all the sailors returned safely to the club.
Congratulations to Dana Rohde for winning the US Sailing Junior Women’s Singlehanded Championship in July. The event was sailed at the Beverly Yacht Club, Marion, MA in Lasers. Dana representing the Beaufort Yacht & Sailing Club won over 41 other junior women from all areas of the USA. US Sailing divides the country into districts and all areas are represented in these ladder events-this was the championship.
Dana, Devon and older sister, Krista, are all sailing daughters of Carrie and Dan Rohde, long time members of BYSC.
