MYC Rocks it at the 2016 Flying Scot NAC at Sail Newport in RI

Jul 26 2016

  MYC hosted the 2016 Flying Scot NAC at Sail Newport in RI from July 16-21, 2016.  What an incredible experience - the venue, the food, the people, the racing - unbelievable.

I am told by many participants and spectators that Massapoag Yacht Club and Fleet 76 rocked it from registration and measuring on Saturday and Sunday, to the catered meals from Blue Rocks Market in Newport, the make your own PB&J sandwiches, liquid refreshments, launching and retrieving boats, trophy presentations, and all the way through the juggling of boats and cars at the end of the day on Thursday.  We had some help from other New England and the Candlewood, CT, fleets in registration and measurement and that went very smoothly thanks to some very organized and patient Fleet 76 members.  With 46 boats and suits of sails to juggle at registration and measurement and then on the water, this was no easy task.  

We owe a huge thanks to Roger and Kate Sharp, John and Connie Eckarts, Harvey and Margy Davidson and of course Greg Kampf for their tireless efforts in getting the work done behind the scenes,  And a big thanks to Dennis Dubuc, Evan Locke, Dan Abram, Bob Flynn, and Leila McNeff for getting boats in and out of the water, driving boats, taking thousands of pictures of the event and taking good care of our trophies.  Thanks also to Hank Sykes and Art Petrosemolo who spent a day or two on the water and took several photos of the event - this may have been the most photographed NAC “eva”!  I know it took a village to put on this event and I am very proud to have been the village leader.  

It's a wrap, but an experience I think we will talk about for a long time to come!

   Roger Sharp and his daughter Laura Favicchio placed Third in the Flying Scot North American Championship in the Championship Division!  They were also awarded the trophy for the Best sailed family boat with a woman on board.  Way to go Roger and Laura.  Meanwhile, Kate Sharp was busy doing scoring throughout the event!  
   Dave Rousseau and Jay McNeff placed Third in the Flying Scot North American Championship in the Challenger Division!  They won 2 of the 5 races in the finals against 22 other boats in the division.  Great job Dave and Jay!
