LISOT's Sarah Williams/Collin Murphy Win C420 Mid Atlantics

Congratulations to Sarah and Collin for dominating this years' C420 Mid-Atlantic's.

The duo won this "home game" at Noroton YC with an impressive 14 point lead over the very fast 2nd place pair, Axel Sly/Scott Ewing, up from Coral Reef YC, and a 34 point lead over 3rd place LISOT team of Reinier Eenkema van Dijk/Spencer McDonough, who also sailed a superb regatta.

LISOT placed 7 in the top 12 as well as the top female award to Olivia Crane/Fiona Walsh in 4th overall.

Head Coach Steve Keen was accompanied by current Olympic Coach Bunny Warren and Richard.

The 6 races on Saturday in shifty and puffy Northerlies were followed on Sunday with more clear and cloudless sun and a rock solid Westerly that built to 15, gusting 20 with a ripping moon flood tide that made for some big, steep seas and very challenging starts.

The RC ran 4 more races on Sunday for a total of 10, all with a .8 mile beat, before the 1400 hour deadline (starting Race 10 with just 10 minutes remaining on the clock).

And to add a tad of excitement to the breezy day, Head Coach Steve Keen, in full foul weather gear, dove in under a capsized boat just prior to the start of a race to rescue a sailor.

In the end, the two day regatta included 10 races with 1 throw out.
