Is there anything our North American Masters sailors can't do well? Great article in Sailing World about our very own Peter Seidenberg, written by Joe Berkeley with photos by Peter Hurley.  One call does it all! See it here.

2006 Chesapeake Bay Laser Masters PDF Print E-mail
Tuesday, 12 September 2006 16:11
The 25th annual Chesapeake Bay Laser Masters Regatta was held September 9-10, hosted by the Fishing Bay Yacht Club and with 39 sailors in attendance. James Jacob is the overall winner, check out the full results as well as pictures and read David Hazelhurst's report below:

The wind Gods looked kindly on the 39 sailors who put in a total of 11 races. Saturday looked bleak with flat water at 11.00 but 50 minutes later wind came from the east and no time was lost starting the first race. Unbelievably the weather mark was not moved while 6 races were finished. From the signal boat racing was close,
and from one sailors perspective a little too close at the leeward mark rounding. While the protest committee was unemployed both days we saw our fair share of alternative penalties taken. After a general recall in the second race the "I" flag was used and served it's purpose. After racing the sailors and their partners dined on what visitors have described as "the best Yacht Club food in the country" courtesy of Chef Alain.

The forecast on Sunday was more promising with the only question when the wind would arrive. The first race was delayed 5 minutes primarily to allow six stragglers to reach the starting area. Five races were run in short order with the marks moved only once. Many of the racers were regular attendees but we also welcomed a number of newcomers. The results show James Jacob as a fifth time winner, closely followed by another past winner Mike Schmidt. Jon Deutsch ably managed the event taking innumerable photographs as well as having results available before many of the sailors reached shore.

One more time Fishing Bay Yacht Club demonstrated this annual event should be a must on every east coast Laser sailors calendar. Same time, same place?
