Storm Trysail Club Schedules 2005 IRC East Coast Championship ANNAPOLIS, MD--The Storm Trysail Club-Chesapeake Station has scheduled its 2005 IRC East Coast Championship for Nov. 4 to 6. This event, known since 2001 as the IMS Mid-Atlantic Championship, has been renamed to reflect the growing interest in IRC racing. The 2005 event will again be sponsored by Annapolis Yacht Sales, with social events to be held at the Annapolis Yacht Club. One notable difference in the 2005 event is the expansion of the event from two to three days and the intention of including a distance race on Friday, Nov. 4. It is anticipated that the Notice of Race, including any lower limits on IRC ratings, will be released by July 1.

Teams were narrowed down from 8 to 4 after finishing the the morning's second Gold Fleet round, with Yale, USC, Harvard, and Hobart/William Smith pulling through at the top. Final Standings: Wins Losses 1. Hobart/ WmSmith 13 4 2. Yale 10 7 3. USC 10 7 4. Harvard 10 7 5. Georgetown 6 8 Harvard Wins 2005 ICSA North American Women's Dinghy Championship AUSTIN, TEXAS--As a result of the early arrival of the predicted afternoon storms that disrupted the days racing schedule, sailors in both A and B divisions completed only 14 of the planned 18 races to determine who would take home the championship crown. Harvard University and the College of Charleston had been tied for the overall regatta lead for the first two days of racing and ultimately it was consistent sailing that kept The Crimson in position to win the championship for the fifth time in the school's history. Harvard's graduating senior Genny Tulloch (Houston, Texas) racing in A Division with sophomore Emily Simon (Oak Brook, Ill.), and junior Sloan Devlin (Mystic, Conn.) with sophomore Christina Dahlman (Chevy Chase, Md.) in B Division, each placed second in their respective divisions with 80 points. The team's final score (determined by the combined results of its sailors in A and B divisions) was 160 to College of Charleston's 182. Hobart/William Smith Colleges Wins ICSA/Gill North American Coed Dinghy ChampionshipAUTIN, TEXAS--The sailors from Hobart/William Smith Colleges (HWS)-who are used to sailing in 20-30 degree temperatures-made the best of this week's sunshine and 90-plus degree temps while parlaying their lake-sailing experience into their second straight Inter-Collegiate Sailing Association (ICSA) championship title in less than a week. On, June 7, the Hobart/William Smith Colleges team lay claim to the ICSA/Layline Team Race Championship- their first-ever win of that title. On the final day of the championship series, only eight races (four apiece in both A- and B-Divisions) stood between HWS and the title. Sailing for The Colleges in A-Division were skipper and graduating senior John Storck (Huntington, N.Y.) with sophomore crew Amanda Markee (Rancho Santa Fe, Calif.) and junior Zach Goldman (Huntington, N.Y.). Sophomore skipper Trevor Moore (Pomfret, Vt.) with junior crew Augusta Nadler (Marion, Mass.) sailed in B-Division. A division = 18 RacesB division = 18 Races A B TOT 1. Hobart/ WmSmith 114 83 197 2.

The conference organized by the National Women's Sailing Association (NWSA) gives women sailors, from novices to experts, an opportunity to network with other women while learning new skills or brushing up on old ones. Included among the team of expert women instructors was Ruth Wood, president of the BoatU.S. Foundation for Boating Safety and Clean Water and experienced racer who presented the "Welcome Aboard" sessions for women new to boating, along with conference co-chair Joan Thayer. The day's workshops included numerous on-the-water clinics to give participants a chance to get their hands on everything from man-overboard drills to spinnaker sets, racing starts and anchoring a boat. The land-based sessions covered navigation, diesel engines, jury-rigging at sea, and first aid. http://www.BoatUS.com/news/releases.asp First Yachts Complete 2005 Annapolis to Newport Race NEWPORT, RI--For the fourth time since 1993, Donnybrook, Jim Muldoon's custom 72-footer from Annapolis, Md. has taken line honors as the first yacht to finish the Annapolis to Newport Race. At 17:39:26 on Sunday, June 12, Donnybrook crossed the finish line off Castle Hill Rock at the mouth of the Narragansett Bay in 12 knot breezes flying her trademark shamrock-logoed asymmetrical spinnaker. With an elapsed time of 53:24:08, Michael Brennan's TP 52 Sjambok from Newport, RI finished second across the line less than 15 minutes behind. According to the IRC Rule under which both yachts were racing, Sjambok, with a rating of 1.336, beat Donnybrook, with a rating of 1.442, by 5:18:26.4 on corrected time.
