The link to the results can be found at the following site:

There were 3 long races on Saturday, which was a good match for the 15 - 20 mph winds (topped out at 23mph).  A few boats shrimped their spinnakers (learned a lesson on getting the halyard up first before getting the tack partially out on windy days).  Several boats broached at various points during the day.  The up-wind legs were a real work-out!  The down-wind legs were a REAL BLAST!!! Sunday was just the opposite...NO WIND AT ALL in the morning, and after a few hours with the AP flag up the regatta was called.  By 2pm on Sunday, it was white capping again.  Congratulations to Bill Wiggins for picking up a 1st, BJ Jones for 2nd, and Don Corey for 3rd place finishes over-all.
