Good Turn out on Saturday, September 9th, 2016, at 1300 hours the regatta started with 6 boats participating. Great North-NorthWwest wind was holding 12-15 mph all day. So skippers could really show their skills. Andy Snider on LO with his friend Roger were great beating every one by almost 5 minutes. Congratulations Andy with the first place. Felix Pustilnik on THIS IS IT was able to take second place with only 29 seconds beating Andrew Shabalin on OBSESSION. Preatty dramatic considering 12.3 n.miles distance.
Congratulations Felix Pustilnik and his crew of THIS IS IT with the Romer Cup of 2017
