This past Sunday, October 11th, the Housatonic Boat Club, Milford Yacht Club & Windjammers Sailing Club in conjunction with ECSA hosted the 2015 Columbus Day Regatta. This is one of the final races for the 2015 ECSA schedule and the last race west of Essex & Westbrook. The forecast brought in a Sou’westerly at 15kts, gusting a bit with waves 1-2 feet. It was conditions ideal for the sport boats, and they excelled.
Below are the results and the other regatta documents. Thank you to all racers and RC members for running an excellent race, with very close results. Results –Columbus Day Scoring 2015 (Final)
Congratulations to MYC’s own, Bruce Kuryla and crew for winning US Sailings Offshore Championship (Lloyd Phoenix Cup) this past week-end in Annapolis, MD. The win for skipper Kuryla and his crew marks the third U.S. Offshore Championship, including three of the last four (2015, 2011, 2009). His highly skilled crew featured Blake Marriner, William Tyler, Thomas Jankun, Rod Swift, Phillip Williamson, and Bruce S. Kuryla. His crew has been consistent at this event for all three his championships.
The Lloyd Phoenix Trophy will be engraved with the winning skipper’s name and area, and will be showcased at the United States Naval Academy Sailing Hall of Fame. This unprecedented success is a tribute to Bruce & team’s hard work, great skill and good fortune. Milford Yacht Club is also the beneficiary of this good fortune, proud to claim the Kurylas (both father and son) as one of our own and challenged on our local waters to “beat the best.”
Great success for an excellent group of sailors, congratulations again!
