    HYC Regatta Results/ From Ross Cudlitz HYC Race Committee Chairman

    (News, Race Results - 30th June, 2012)

    The HYC Regatta was held last Saturday (June 30th) as part of the Gulf of Maine Ocean Racing Associations’ series. It’s a fun and interesting pursuit race format that provides a staggered start and always keeps the HYC race committee on their toes!

    Pictures ; http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ekzenhTiixE

    The wind at noon was very light but as predicted strengthened to 10-12 knots to make it easy for the fleet of 22 boats to finish the 8-mile course. The course started from Mosers and went out to Whaleboat, then down and around Lower Goose then back to finish at Mosers. Many HYC members and several Casco Bay Yacht Clubs participated. There were also many spectator boats.

    Bill and Mary Foster along with Peter Gerquest provided a great race Committee and Huge Thank – You!  Post race Bill Ginn provided fabulous appetizers and dinner including lasagna, salads and fresh strawberry ice cream sundaes for desert feeding all the skippers and crew. For our sailing thirst we wish to Thank Gritty’s for two kegs of their finest beer.

    We certainly would like to increase the participation every year. So come out and join this race next year. Enjoy a day on the bay with friends. This race is designed for everyone. Whether you are out for a family race or serious competition, this race has it all.

    2009 “Wild Ride” – Grub Tub Worlds

    (News, Race Results - 20th September, 2009)


    September 19, 2009; HYC, South Freeport, Maine

    The Grub Tub World Championships were held here today on a beautiful, gusty September afternoon. The “Grub Tub”, a wonderful sailing dinghy designed and built by Henry “Grubby” Douglas, has a long history in this harbor and at HYC. This sailing event hasn’t been held for a quite a few years, but thanks to Stuart MacDonald, Cliff George and a few others, a small fleet of six “Tubs” entered the competition. Heidi Bishop, Jeff Whiting, Faith Baker, Henry Bliss, Ben Niles and Tim Baker launched their boats and braved a wild, gusty breeze generally (using the term mildly) from the Northwest. As most recalled from past GT Worlds, these conditions are the norm. The word “attrition” was heard quite often afterwards as three of the six Tubs had to retire due to multiple dunks in the drink. Regardless, everyone showed their skill and sportsmanship. Thanks to Ross Cudlitz for running the show, Cliff & Laura George and Susie Soule for the cheering section – as well as bailing a lot of water!

    Final Results

    1st   Ben Niles

    2nd   Henry Bliss

    3rd  Tim Baker

    Photos have been posted (taken by Susie Soule)

    Additional notes from the race committee (with additional photos posted):

    Great race, congrats to all contestants for braving the NW gales of September.
    Six boats started the first race and 5 finished (Whiting first in the drink)
    Fifth race three boats started two finished, need I say more (more swimmers and drop outs).
    Scoring: Ben Niles:      3/4, 2, 2, 2, 2    =  8.75
    Henry Bliss:    3, 3, 3, 3/4, 3/4 = 10.5
    Tim Baker:      2, 3/4, 3/4, 4, 4 = 11.5 (two penalty strokes for being out of the fairway).

    I wanted to take a picture of Tim trying to right his craft 50 feet from the finish line, however his safety seemed more important at the moment.
    Ben Niles learned that grub tubs do not carry any momentum when one tries to round up hard and tack over the finish line, Henry just cruised on by.
    Oh by the way Henry, on that general recall you all started in the exact same positions and locations, creatures of habit.
    Next year no horns necessary, just Cliff’s cheer leading voice (pom poms and saddle shoes optional).
    Lets not forget to remember Grubby Douglass for making this possible.
