Opti New Englands Day 1 - 5 LISOT sailors in top 25

With bright blue skies, warm sun, the classic Newport sea breeze and a strong near-full moon current, LISOT hit the starting line with confidence today in the 321 boat championship fleet at the 2009 USODA New England Championship.

After 4 races in what may be the largest Opti regatta in the US this year, LISOT has 5 sailors in the top 25, including Harry (3), Drew (14), Alexandra (18), Reinier (19) and Lily (25). And Harry, Alex and Drew each had a bullet!

In addition, a few who sailed on Team LISOT at US Nationals last week in California, and are sailing with their local yacht clubs for this event, include Maeve White (7), Matthew Kaplan (29), Jonathan Lutz (34) and Maddie Widmeier (68) and Ty Ingram (119).

Tomorrow's forecast is for conditions similar to today which should provide the fleet with their first throw out.

After 4 races, Team LISOT finishes are:
3. Harry Koeppel
14. Drew Gallagher
18. Alex DelBello
19. Reinier Eenkema van Dijk
25. Lily Katz
57. Florian Eenkema van Dijk
84. Sean Walsh
91. Brendan Shanahan
92. Patrick Shanahan
99. Julia Monro
121. Augie Dale
145. Jared Gaynes
146. Travis Bobley
158. Ian Crane
165. Will Logue
179. Caroline Booth
259. Matt Logue
284. Sydney Beres
318. Elizabeth Shanahan
