2013 Stanley Bell Regatta Results

Larchmont YC hosted a spectacular Stanley Bell Memorial Regatta.  33 teams raced part or all of the weekend.  Sun and warmth into the 50s on Saturday, with wind from the NNE with lulls around 5-6 kts and puffs around 10-11 kts, allowing for 7 races.  John & Molly Baxter were launched in the standings after Saturday’s racing with a 17-point lead.  Eight teams participated in the chili cookoff post racing, which was won by long-time crew and expert cookoff trash talker Felicity Ryan in a close battle over Ted Ferrarone and Simon Strauss.  Sunday’s wind forecast was better than predicted on all fronts — a fluky, light SSE breeze never showed, and instead we had a solid easterly around 10 kts that clocked slightly to the right as the day went on, allowing for an additional 8 races, 15 in total.  Guest skipper Parker Shinn from San Diego YC and Coco Sprague narrowed the gap on Sunday to a single point going into the final race, but the Baxters held on for the regatta victory.
