Our racing committee was led by its professional chair, Nasim Shamailov, and assisted by veteran, Barbara Banchik. Together they designed and produced a successful racing season. Three Trophy Regattas were conducted on Saturdays. And ten Wednesday evenings provided spirited recreational racing for our active Ensign fleet. Finally, a Fall Trophy series was contested over 4 Saturdays. A Corinthian spirit ensued with skippers rotating the committee boat responsibilities every week.
Participation in the Ensign racing was higher than previous seasons, with ten skippers and their crew participating. In 12 weeks, only two races were cancelled due to weather. A number of crew associates took part too, taking advantage of the newest membership class. Our entertainment chair, Leon Paley performed heroic duty each week, both sailing and arranging the dinners after each race.
