30th Chesapeake Bay Laser Masters Championship Results

Laser Masters sailors from around the bay and beyond descended on Fishing Bay Yacht Club for the 30th Chesapeake Bay Laser Masters Championship for two days of racing in a variety of conditions.  Master Mike Schmidt from Magothy River Sailing Association emerged as the overall champion after 7 races beating Apprentice Master Keith Davids from Mission Bay Yacht Club by just a point.

On Saturday, mother nature delivered winds in the 18-22 knot range with gusts approaching 30 out of the west. While most of the sailors completed the first race, by the later races in the day attrition started to take place in the challenging conditions of the Piankatank River. Most of the fleet opted to sail radial rigs for the day under the rig swap rule that allows sailors to pick standard, radial or 4.7 rigs for each day’s wind conditions and still sail against each other.

Ryan Minth (C-VANE) from Houston Texas, David Schoene (Severn Sailing Association) and Mike Schmidt (MRSA) each had wins in the 3 races that were sailed on Saturday.

After racing on Saturday the sailors and race committee were treated to refreshments and a dinner of Alain Vincey’s pork Osso Buco.

Friday, 24 February 2012 00:48

It came in with a bang, and went out with one.  In between, we had several days of challenging light air sailing.  A little something for everyone!  Sixty five competitors from six countries and fifteen states enjoyed the seven days of sailing at three different venues during the nine day period from Feb 11 to Feb 19.  

The Florida Masters hosted by Palm Beach Sailing Club and the Royal Turkey Yacht Club provided a great day of ocean sailing, followed by a gusty day of sailing in the “lake” by the club, Feb 11 & 12.  Boats were loaded and journeyed an hour north to  USSCMC, Jensen Beach for Midweek Madness Feb 14&15.  Racing here was in the Indian River Lagoon in light to medium winds.  The sailors again loaded boats and moved a couple hours north to Melbourne Yacht Club for Masters Midwinters East and three more days of sailing in the Indian River Lagoon Feb 17, 18 &19.  The first two days of sailing saw light easterly winds with lots of pressure variation and shifts.  Definitely a test of light air skills!  A front arrived Sunday with winds gusting over 20 knots which made for some hearty, fun conditions.

Based on results in each age category for the three events, overall age category winners are determined.  An overall winner and the first lady are also determined based on overall finishes in the three regattas.  Michelle Davis won the first lady award.   Although he did not win any individual event, John MacCausland sailed most consistently to be the Masters Week Overall Winner.  Age category winners are:  Apprentice – David Hillmyer; Master – Peter Shope; Grand Master – Doug Peckover; Great Grand Master – David Hartman.

It’s not too early to put the week of Feb 9 through Feb 17, 2013 on your calendar for Masters Week 2013!
