USODA NE's - Day 1: Team LISOT Out In Front!
It was a picture perfect day on Narragansett Bay for the start of the 3-day 2010 USODA New Englands at Sail Newport. And the classic Southwest sea breeze didn't disappoint - with 15-20 knots and loads of sunshine.
Team LISOT was fired up and out of the gate like a shot, with many sailors taking line honors.
Jack Parkin leads the 332 boat fleet with 9 points, including 2 bullets in the 4 races on Day 1.
Six LISOT sailors make up the top 12, including:
5 Harry Koeppel (also had 2 bullets)
6. Russell Clarida
7. Augie Dale
9. Will Logue
12. Drew Gallagher
Russell, Augie and Will also each had a bullet on the day, as did Kate van Loveren.
Tomorrow's forecast is for another day of smokin' seabreeze.
