Saturday morning update

The Vineyard RC will start standing watch at 0800 today in anticipation of the first boat crossing the line shortly thereafter. As of 0600 that looks like Pegasus, Austin Royle’s Tartan 41 out of Wilton, Conn. She is now located off Bridgeport traveling about 4 knots.

Conditions have lightened over night. Western Long Island Sound only shows 2 knots. All the boats on the Cornfield course have rounded the turning marks and are headed home.

On the Seaflower course Sirius (Mike Sullivan, Fairfield, Conn.) and Morning Glory (Carl Olsson, Larchmont, N.Y.) are at the lead off the pack off Guilford. Both are traveling 5.8 knots and should finish mid day at their current speeds.

The lead boat on the Vineyard course is still Rambler (George David, Hartford, Conn.) She has re-entered the Sound and is now hugging the Long Island shore. Meanwhile, her closest competitors — Wizard (Ralf Seitz, USMMA) and Blue Yankee (Bob and Farley Towse, Stamford, Conn.) — are up near Fisher Island Sound preferring the north shore on their return.
