It’s not often we see A Skeeters racing in the East, so kudos to the Connecticut Ice Boat Club on Bantam Lake for putting this together last weekend. Let’s do it again soon!
CIYC – Bantam CT. Congratulations to all who raced in the 2018 Lloyd Young Regatta last Saturday. We had great ice conditions and strong SSW winds.
Tony Bosco scored first in the Hi-Rig series followed by Rich Batista in second place. George Neyssen blew out the clew on his mainsail just as Tony was about to pass him at the windward mark, which forced him to withdraw during the second race. At that point he was in the lead position after a win in the first race.
Just for the record, that red fish house is NOT the other mark. Bantam’s small, but not that small. Tony Bosco, below.
Fred Greis won first place in the Lo-Rig series as well as first place in the J14 class followed by Mike Acebo in his J14. Dave Danielson won first place in the Nite class followed by Al Horrocks in second place. Special thanks are in order to Bob Lee and Ted Bent for helping me with the Race Committee duties. We had a terrific day!

Thanks for posting Bill. With the exception of Mike writing and posting the newsletter, crickets from our own club. Guess they don’t know how to react if it’s not DNS and the NAs. Disappointing after 44 years as an avid club member/officer. Think I may move to Maine. Thanks again for the good chat yesterday and building me a great mast! More speed to find.
