After so many postponements Ensing Racers finally got a date for Kossman Ensign Regatta. Unfortunately only five boats showed up. This year, the results of Ensign class Kossman regatta will be counted as firt day racing in Fall series.
The day started with, little incoming current, sunny skies and slow southern wind at 4-5 knt. Tidal current picked up and was maximum at 2,5 knts in Rockaway Channel by 15:00. And the wind got stronger and was blowing 12-15.
Because of the strong current there were a lot of mishaps and hitting the marks. SILVERSURFER made a record hitting marks three times in one regatta.
Congratulation Andrew Shabalin, Rich Lubel and Nasim Shamailov
Originally scheduled for July 28th regatta was rescheduled for August 4th due to weather. Just our luck that August 4th forecast showed rain-storm. Fortunatelly, storm had passed leaving somewhat choppy surface, but the sun came out and wind was steadily blowing from the West at 12-15 m/h.
Congratulation Felix Pustilnik with 1st place and Andy Snyner with 2nd place
