Katie Combaluzier ‘16, Marie Boileau ‘16, Jonah Burke-Kleinman ‘16, and Aaron Babier ‘15 raced the NY Maritime Fall Open.

Saturday, September 20:

Racing started promptly at 10:00am in a shifty 8-12 knot South Easterly breeze. The Breeze swung around to the South and picked up as the day went on. 8 races were completed in each division sailing W4’s with typical crazy East River cross course current. The I flag was used in all starts and there were a few general recalls. 2 Protests were filed resulting in 2 DSQ’s.

Thanks to Rob Crafa the Waterfront director, and the entire SUNY Maritime Dinghy team for helping put run the regatta, Especially Ben Wilkinson, Austin Buonsignore, and Ben Wang for running races all day until 6:30pm without a break.

The first race is scheduled for 10:00am tomorrow.

Sunday, September 21:

After a 2 and a half hour wind delay, A division tried to go out in the biggest puff of the day, as soon as they launched any breeze that was around died.

Thanks again to all of the SUNY undergrads as well as Rob Crafa for helping run a great event.

Thanks to all of the teams for coming! Congrats to the St. Mary’s Seahawks for winning the 2014 Maritime Fall Open.
