North Sails clients dominate the leaderboard in Westport, CT

1st Place Youth Team. Congrats to team ‘Mudratz’!

No less than 350 sailing fanatics found their way to Connecticut last weekend for the annual Cedar Point Regatta, which was a great turn out for the J109, J105, J88, J70, and Beneteau 36.7 fleets. On Friday, North Sails Regatta Services provided a clinic and debrief to give competitors feedback on techniques, boat set up, and fine tuning. North Sails’ Brian Hayes, with help from the Cedar Point Yacht Club event staff, ran several practice starts and races. The team focused on videotaping sailors’ techniques to offer ideas on trimming and boat speed improvements. Unstable conditions were not the easiest for the clinic attendees, but the breeze forecast was expected to be strong for the weekend, and emphasis on crew work and timing had significant importance.

The Race Committee did a great job managing Saturday’s “blustery” conditions as best as possible, allowing competitors to get some fun and challenging racing in. Time management was key this weekend, and the PRO’s on both courses were on top getting the most out of the wind and daylight. The army of “yellow shirt” volunteers made the event a total success, the team in constant motion working to shorten courses and anticipate the shifts. With the club’s strong OD sailing program and grassroots involvement, it was clear all weekend that Cedar Point YC had it going on.

Saturday and Sunday provided great sailing conditions. Post race debriefs hosted by North Sails showed video of the day’s highlights, including some carnage in the breeze! The North Sails Regatta Services, team led by Chuck Allen, provided photos for all sailors so they could see what was needed for improvement within their team. North Sails’ local legend, Ched Proctor, a Cedar Point YC member competing in the J/88 class, provided some key points and shared some of his personal pearls of wisdom with the sailors at the tent after racing.

North Sails is proud to partner with the members of CPYC to host some of the best One Design sailing of the summer.
