ILCA Atlantic Coast Championship, Susquehanna Yacht Club
This year our sister fleet 253 in Susquehanna Yacht Club hosted the Atlantic Coast Championship. It was a beautiful venue and great turn out with 29 boats! Since there were several folks getting ready for the North American’s (being hosted at Buffalo Canoe Club, Canada in early August), there was some great competition from over 12 different clubs! Be sure to check out the results 2019-0714 Atlantic_Coast_Championship_795197327 to see all of the different teams.
The first day, we had very light shifty wind conditions but were able to get 4 races. On Sunday, the wind started to fill in nicely, but due to the Sis there was a limit on 5 races, so unfortunately, there was only one race Sunday.
Congratulations to Don Brush, Emma Hawko & Darcy Lavalie (Malletts Bay) who came in first place, Parker Colantuono Jackie Morrison & Samantha Kappaz (Niantic Bay YC) 2nd Place & Mark, Adam & Cindi Schneider (Riverton YC) who came in 3rd. Special Kudos to Bill Cabrall, Brian Hayes & Stephanie Detwiler who was the highest placing Dixie District Boat in 5th Place!
