Kossman Regatta

Ensign Class


Another Great day on the water. Beautiful, steady 10-12 knt wind South-West then South and South East by 3:00pm. Clear sky. And very-very strong current. At times the current exceeded 3knt at Rockaway 12.

First race was windward-leeward to Coney Island mark#2, back through start to Sheepshead Bay Mark#3 and Finish. As the wind shifted it quickly become beam-reach course, no tacking, it makes the race dull. UFORIA skippered by Andrew, ruled the race. Second and third race courses and starting lines were changed because wind shifted to South East.

In the last, third race SPLASH skippered by Richard Lubell failed to hold the leading position and was ousted by UFORIA and THE BEES KNEES skippered by a new and promising member of the club David Shin.

Our congratulations to David, who took third place in the regatta; it is his first prize in the regattas. Second place - SPLASH skippered by Rich Lubell. Kossman regatta championship is confirmed by its last year winner - UFORIA skippered by Andrew Shabalin.
