A hint of summer at the W.D. Memorial Schock Regatta
This past weekend, the NHYC hosted the annual W.D. Schock Memorial Regatta, and the participants were treated to a hint of Summer with 80 degree weather on both Saturday and Sunday.
Thirty-five Harbor 20’s participated in the 2-day High Point regatta. The A Fleet had a solid 13 participants, while the B fleet had a very full pack of 17 participants. The newly formed C fleet had 5 new Harbor 20 owners participate in the regatta.
Saturday started on time at 1300 and treated the Fleet to steady Westerly winds resulting in 4 races for all three fleets (A, B and C). The day was filled with excitement as the Bay was full of recreational boating enthusiasts enjoying the summer-like weather. The day ended with drinks, social time and a Taco dinner at NHYC.
While the weather was even better on Sunday, the wind was fickle and toyed with the Race Committee, shifting back and forth from West to South and back again. After an hour delay waiting for the wind to settle in, the Race Committee was able to get off 2 races in puffy, shifty and unpredictable winds.
Bill & Dianne Menninger took 1st place in the A Fleet, George and John Drayton won 1st in the B Fleet (and as a result, move to the A Fleet) and Jonathan and Tucker Cheadle won 1st in the C Fleet.
The Harbor 20 Class & Fleet 1 thanks NHYC for hosting the event and thanks the Race Committee for running a first class regatta.
