Schock Takes #1 at Fleet 1 Ocean Race
Nearly perfect conditions greeted the Harbor 20’s for their second ocean race regatta: Calm seas, good wind, sunny and warm. South Shore Yacht Club provided race committee and a custom Windward/Leeward course after the yachts of the Crew of Two and Double Dash races left the starting line.
Seven Harbor 20s raced four races each at about 25 minutes long. Tom & Jane Schock dominated the first position with three 1st and a 2nd place finish giving them the overall 1st place with 5 points.
The 2nd, 3rd and 4th positions were hotly contested, separated only by a few points:
2nd Place: Karl & Cole Pomeroy (2nd, 4th, 4th, 3rd)
3rd Place: John Whitney & Phil Ramser (4th, 5th, 2nd, 4th)
4th Place: Nik Froehlich & Greg Hawkins (5th, 3rd, 6th, 2nd)
5th Place: Rolly Pulaski & Anne (3rd, 6th, 3rd, 5th)
6th Place: Matt Campbell & Crew
7th Place: Barbara Jones & Crew
Thank you to Rod & Nancy Swift for providing photos.
Thank you for organizing Saturday’s race out in the ocean. The weather was fantastic, the committee did a terrific job, and the courses were perfect. It was so nice to race on a course unobstructed by mooring fields, party boats, and windshifts coming around houses! It was fun to be able to use boat-on-boat tactics instead of boat-against-obstacle tactics.
Tom & Jane
Thanks Nik for putting the race together. We had a great time!
