For the first time in decades, Constitution YC ran a Wednesday Night Race under a handicapping system other than PHRF. The evening was warm, the winds were fickle, the RC was hardy, and the racing was tight. The highlight had to be MIT's "Mashnee," a 1902 Herreshoff Buzzards Bay 30, which made her debut in the B fleet much to the oohs, ahhs, and distractions of the other racing crews. More than one person was heard muttering, "maybe I should go back to grad school..." Truly an impressive vessel and she looked quite spectacular on the course.
We are still straightening out some registrations, but the preliminary results are posted here.
Welcome to the 2018 season!
