The weather is starting to warm up in the Northeast, so that means it’s time to pack up the boat for the summer! Sounds a bit strange doesn’t it? But for diehard frostbite sailors, especially Interclub sailors, the arrival of spring means the winter sailing season is winding down and the penultimate event, the Nationals, is happening! This year 27 teams made their way to picturesque Cottage Park Yacht Club in Winthrop MA, for the 2017 edition of the event. 10 races were completed in the waters just north of the Logan Airport runway in shifty, nearly perfect spring breeze.
Ted Ferrarone and Meredith Killion found the secret formula for success; Consistency. Compiling a scorecard with a race no worse than 6th and only one race win, their 37 overall points were enough to best Steve Benjamin and Daley Brooks by 19 points to secure the championship.
North Sails is honored to sponsor and support the 2017 edition, and we are proud of the fine performance of our clients who took the top 10 spots overall. The products of choice were the North RadIC or RadIC 12+ mainsail. Next fall will come fast so for more information on our Interclub sails and ways to prepare for the next frostbiting season, contact our Interclub experts!
