    West Coast Teams Make A Statement


    West Coast Teams Take the Early Lead at Race Week at Newport presented by Rolex, Partnership Announced with Hammetts Hotel

    NEWPORT, R.I. – Southern California sailors are not used to extended breaks in their sailing schedule, the weather being conducive to getting out on the water pretty much year-round. Of course, 2020 hasn’t been a normal year anywhere. For David Team (Newport Beach, Calif.), the owner of the TP52 Vesper, and Bill Ruh (Del Mar, Calif.) and Drew Freides (Los Angeles), co-owners of the Melges IC37 Pacific Yankee, the New York Yacht Club’s Race Week at Newport presented by Rolex is their first opportunity to race their boats in nine months or more.

    “It’s fantastic,” said Ruh, who helmed Pacific Yankee into a tie for first after four challenging races in shifty, puffy conditions on upper Narragansett Bay. “We couldn’t be happier with all the hard work the New York Yacht Club has put in to get us out on the water. We really appreciate the race committee doing their job and the folks on shore making it happen.”







    The Pacific Yankee team dominated the Melges IC37 Winter Series in Fort Lauderdale in late 2019 and early 2020, the last class racing before today. Today they picked up right where they left off with a pair of firsts in the first three races today. A slight bobble, a sixth, in the fourth and final race of the day allowed Chris Culver’s Blazer II team to pull level at the head of the pack, with 2019 National Champion Members Only in third, three points behind. But Ruh was more than pleased with Pacific Yankee's start to the regatta.

    “We did well today because our crew did a terrific job changing gears, constantly working the boat, and we had fantastic tactical calls from Brad Rodi,” says Ruh. “It just all came together for us.”

    With just one main and one jib for all conditions, changing gears on the Melges IC37, says Ruh, is more challenging that on a boat that might carry three or four headsails for different wind speeds.

    “It takes more adept and synchronized work from the crew,” he says. “That’s where all the years we’ve spent sailing together is helpful. It’s a matter of having the main and jib trimmers adjusting to the runner tension and working in unison to change the profile of the sails to meet what we’re trying to achieve in boat speed or angle.”








    David Team’s crew on the TP52 Vesper found themselves in a slightly similar situation when the breeze exceeded their expectations for the day.

    “We had more breeze than we expected when we left the dock this morning,” says Team. “We only brought out our light-air sails. The second race in breeze was a little bit of a struggle with the lighter jib, but we persevered. We had some interesting starts in races 2 and 3, but were able to stay focused and sailing hard, and enjoy trading tacks with everybody, especially Victor Wild’s Pac52 Fox. All the boats seemed very well sailed.”

    Team and his crew won the first and third races of the day and finished second in the middle contest. But Wild’s crew is just two points behind after three races. And you never want to count out Hap Fauth’s Bella Mente, especially if the racing transitions from inside the bay to offshore later in the week. Fauth and team sit in third, seven points out of first.










    For the Vesper crew, however, the results were second to the opportunity to go racing again. Team shipped his boat east from Southern California early in 2020 to prepare for the ORC/IRC World Championships, which were scheduled for this week. That event was canceled in the spring, and Team didn’t sail his boat until a practice session on Narragansett Bay in late August.

    “The first year we raced her was 2018, against the Pac52 class in Southern California,” says Team. “Then the next year we raced under ORR in Southern Cal and decided to bring her east for the New York Yacht Club series of events and the ORC/IRC worlds. So we’ve been eagerly awaiting the opportunity to come back and sail here. It’s been a challenging year, and it’s hard not to be happy with our performance today. We also have to give a shout out to the race committee for their work today, especially in such challenging conditions.”

    The third class, ORC 2, featured some of the closest racing of the day. Tom Sutton’s Leading Edge won the second race by a single second over Cory Sertl’s Das Blau Max. In the third race, it was New York Yacht Club Rear Commodore Paul Zabetakis’ Swan 42 Impetuous taking the win by five second over Leading Edge. With a win in the first race, as well, Leading Edge is living up to its name in the overall standings, two points ahead of Impetuous and seven points ahead of Das Blau Max. With three days of racing remaining, however, no lead is safe in this class where five of eight boats finished a race in the top 3 on Day 1.

    Partnership Announced With Hammetts Hotel

    The New York Yacht Club’s newest regatta partner is one of the newest hotels in town. Hammetts Hotel, built at the intersection of America’s Cup Avenue and Thames Street in downtown Newport, officially opened its doors earlier this summer and will serve as the official hotel partner for Race Week at Newport presented by Rolex and the 166th Annual Regatta, North America’s oldest annual sailing event, which is scheduled for October 2 to 4.

    “We are always on the lookout for like-minded brands to partner with to support our ambitious sailing schedule,” says William P. Ketcham, Commodore of the New York Yacht Club. “We initially planned to bring Hammetts Hotel on board for the ORC/IRC World Championship. With that event canceled, we are very pleased they were willing to pivot to Race Week at Newport presented by Rolex and the Annual Regatta. We’re hopeful this is the start of an enduring partnership between two of the most recognizable properties on Newport Harbor.”

    The new 84-room Hammetts Hotel is located in the heart of downtown Newport. The spirit of the hotel is a nod to Newport’s historic mercantile wharves in a modern context. Guest rooms draw from Newport’s seafaring heritage with a fresh color palette of grays, crisp whites, unfinished woods, and pops of reds and navy. Amenities of Hammetts Hotel include a 9,000-square-foot deck overlooking Newport Marina, along with spacious, flexible gathering spaces. Giusto, a full-service waterfront restaurant with an expansive patio, is now open for lunch and dinner.

    “It is a great honor to be the New York Yacht Club’s newest regatta partner,” said Colin Kane, founding partner of Peregrine Group and managing partner of Hammetts Wharf LLC. “We look forward to welcoming participants and spectators to Hammetts Hotel, their new home in Newport. Our doors are open to all for Race Week and the year ahead."

    Racing in Race Week at Newport presented by Rolex is taking place on Narragansett Bay and Rhode Island Sound through Saturday, September 26.

    Waka Jawaka Walks Away From Competition



    Waka Jawaka Walks Away From the Competition in Melges IC37 Class on Day 2 of Race Week at Newport
    NEWPORT, R.I. – With just a few days to get up to speed in a new one-design class, Michael Goldfarb (Seattle, Wash.) knew exactly where to focus his Waka Jawaka crew's energy.

    "We came four days before the event started," says Goldfarb, who has partnered with Laura Grondin (West Hartford, Conn.) to charter a Melges IC37 for the abbreviated fall season. "All we did was set marks and go around them: tack, tack, set, jibe, jibe, jibe, douse. Three days of that, because my view is if you can't go around the corners, nothing else good is going to happen for you."

    After struggling off the starting line on Day 1, it all came together today for Waka Jawaka with three firsts and a third. The performance vaulted Goldfarb and Grondin from fifth to first with eight races in the books. The lead over second, Qubit, skippered by Chris Lewis (Seabrook, Texas), is 9 points with Day 1 co-leader Pacific Yankee in third, three points further back. There were a number of protests in the class, so the overall standings may shift slightly overnight, but nothing is going to displace Waka Jawaka for the moment.







    While Goldfarb is new to the Melges IC37 class, he is a veteran sportboat sailor, with success in Melges 24s, J/70s and Farr 30s. He also made sure to pull in some experienced talent, namely Shaun and Steven Burke (Atlanta, Ga.), who sailed last season in the Melges IC37 class and brought valuable knowledge to Waka Jawaka program. Goldfarb was also quick to credit the New York Yacht Club's charter program.

    "I think these are fantastic boats," he says. "They're fun to sail, not super tweaky, but they’re very even and the yacht club boats are just in amazing condition. We came out here, we chartered and it’s like having your own boat."

    For Paul Zabetakis, getting back behind the wheel of his Swan 42 Impetuous (left, USA 4206) was like hopping back on the proverbial bike after a long layoff, Only this bike came with a key new feature. It took a day for Zabetakis and his crew to truly get back into the swing of racing, but on Day 2 they were impossible to beat, winning each of three races in ORC 2 to take a 1-point lead over Tom Sutton's Leading Edge in what has become a two-horse race for the title. Third-placed Das Blau Max is 17 points behind.









    "The boat's going real well," says Zabetakis (Jamestown, R.I.). "Now that we're not doing one-design racing, we did make one change to the boat. We put on a new rudder, which was a Greg Stewart design. The 42s had no helm at all. In 5 knots or 20 knots, it was the same thing. Now I have a little bit of feel upwind and downwind it’s better also."

    While the calendar says fall, the weather today on Rhode Island Sound was definitely more reminiscent of high summer, with plentiful sunshine, temps in the 70s and a building southwesterly sea breeze, conditions that are as familiar as a pair of old jeans to anyone who's raced off Newport.

    "The first race started out really light," says Zabetakis. "I think when we started it was 5 to 6 knots. The second race was medium conditions, 10 to 15. By the end of the second race, it started getting very breezy, and then the last race we were sitting on 15 knots with a couple of shots to 18. It was starting to get a little lumpy out there."

    For a team looking to assess a major modification, it would be hard to think of a more perfect day. A full range of conditions and some good competition against which to gauge performance.









    Victor Wild's Pac52 Fox (San Diego, Calif.) won the day in ORC 1, moving within one point of David Team's Vesper (Newport Beach, Calif.) for the overall lead. Hap Fauth's Bella Mente (Naples, Fla.) won Race 2, but struggled in Race 1 and sits third, 11 points off the overall lead.

    Both ORC divisions will do a coastal race tomorrow, while the Melges IC37s will continue buoy racing. The 12th edition of Race Week at Newport presented by Rolex will conclude on Saturday.

    A Grand Time In Newport For 166th Annual Regatta



    Sailing Wins as Nearly 100 Boats Gather for 166th Edition of North America's Oldest Annual Regatta
    NEWPORT, R.I. – Donald Tofias has an expression he's quite fond of. So fond, In fact, he trademarked it and put it on the back of a crew shirt for his W-76 Wild Horses. "Yachting is the winner" it said.

    "The reason we came up with the phrase is when we first started racing the W-76, we didn't win a lot of races," says Tofias, of Newport, R.I. "But when we did win, we'd say, 'Yachting is the winner.'"

    Racing opportunities this summer for Wild Horses, a 76-foot wooden yacht that combines a classic hull form with a modern underbody and construction methods, have been far and few between. It isn't the sort of boat on which you can gather a few friends for a weeknight bash around some government marks. Sailing in a spinnaker division takes a crew of 20. Even racing in a non-spinnaker division, as Wild Horses did for the 166th Annual Regatta this weekend, requires a dozen more more people on board.

    "I've always loved the Annual Regatta," says Tofias, who won the Non-Spinnaker Class this weekend with two firsts and a third. "I think I've done it most every year for the better part of 30 years. I didn't want to miss it. We had the boat on the mooring all summer, and it was time to race. We hadn't sailed much on the boat at all until the Sail For Hope on September 12. We did well in Sail For Hope, so we decided to do the Annual Regatta also."

    The Annual Regatta was first sailed on the Hudson River on July 16 and 18, 1846. A similar competition the previous year was called a Trial of Speed. With a few exceptions for world wars and other global crises, the event has been held every year since. For the majority of its existence, the New York Yacht Club held its Annual Regatta on waters close to New York City. Since 1988, however, the event has been sailed out of the Harbour Court clubhouse in Newport, R.I., and has settled into the current three-day format, which includes a race around Conanicut Island on Friday and two days of buoy racing or navigator-course racing on Saturday and Sunday. The 166th Annual Regatta, which is sponsored by Hammetts Hotel and Helly Hansen, also included the 2020 Melges IC37 National Championship.

    The Annual Regatta is traditionally held in early June, at the start of the Newport sailing season. But due to the COVID-19 pandemic, it was pushed back first to late August before finally settling on the first weekend in October.

    "We were committed to running this event," says New York Yacht Club Commodore William P. Ketcham (Greenwich, Conn.). "Which is why we kept delaying the event rather than canceling it outright. It was challenge, but we finally got to a point where we could run it based on Rhode Island's COVID guidelines and our own Club policies on safety. The enthusiasm on the water, both this weekend and at last weekend's Race Week at Newport presented by Rolex, was tremendous. Our team on Maxine (above, left) packed basically our entire sailing season into two weeks, and we couldn’t have had more fun."

    With 11 points in four races, Ketcham's J/44 Maxine placed second in ORC 3. At the head of the class was Tom Sutton's Leading Edge. While Sutton hails from Houston, Texas—where he lives and sails in the cooler months—Newport has become a second home.

    With most multi-day sailing regattas in 2020 were canceled, the Leading Edge team cobbled together a summer of weeknight and one-day races in and around Narragansett Bay.

    "We raced every race on Tuesday night and did the weekend regattas," says Sutton. "We went to Block Island with the Twenty Hundred Club, we raced around Prudence Island two times, Conanicut Island four or five times. We've gotten in more sailboat racing than in most years. But we miss racing around the buoys. That's what we really like."

    All that time on the water paid off this weekend with wins in Friday's Around the Island Race as well as the weekend series around the buoys. Sutton was quick to share the credit, singling out his wife Diana for her work off the water and on the foredeck and the team's tactical braintrust of Tom Meeh and Alex Crowell.

    "My guys work as hard or harder than anybody," says Tom Sutton. "We’ve sailed together since 2014 and everybody a great time this year. We're all looking forward to coming back next summer."

    Due to the compressed sailing schedule for 2020, the second Melges IC37 National Championship was held concurrently with the Annual Regatta. The competition in the 13-boat one-design class was intense through each of the nine races. While consistency was elusive, Pacific Yankee, co-skippered by Drew Freides (Los Angeles, Calif.) and Bill Ruh (Newport Beach, Calif.), showed that it was without a doubt the fastest boat. The only wobbles in Pacific Yankee's scoreline came today, in very light air, after they'd established an all-but-insurmountable lead through the first seven races. Pacific Yankee finished the championship 13 points ahead of Midnight Blue, skippered by Alexis Michas (New York, N.Y.), and Blazer II, skippered by New York Yacht Club Vice Commodore Christopher J. Culver (Newport, R.I.). Those two boats finished the regatta tied on points—and only two points ahead of fourth place—with Midnight Blue winning the tiebreaker.

    “We’ve had almost the entire team together for the past year, and it takes a team to win on this boat,” says Freides. “We spent a lot of time trying to make the boat fast and we found a number of techniques to keep the boat flat. Like the Melges 20, you have to keep the boat flat and de-powered, especially in the waves, so that’s what we strived for.”

    MELGES 37 WRITEUP








    While the Annual Regatta has traditionally been restricted to larger boats, this year the Club opened the regatta up to two one-design classes that had never before competed in the event, Shields and Sonars. Over the course of three days, the two classes each completed nine races, with the Friday races being scored as a separate series. For the Shields class, which had its 2020 national championship canceled, this regatta was the next best thing.

    "Our crew—Peter Schott, Rachel Balaban, Ted Hood and Matt Buechner, plus my co-skipper Reed Baer—have been sailing together for 20 years," says class winner John Burnham (Middletown, R.I.) on Grace (at right). "For the last 10, more often than not, the national champions have been either Aeolus or Maverick. The other boat that gives us fits is Ken Deyett’s Bit-O-Honey from Beverly Yacht Club in Marion, Mass. In this regatta, we were lucky to beat all three, so it felt almost like winning the Nationals we never had this year. On behalf of the class, I’d like to thank the New York Yacht Club for inviting us to race in the Annual Regatta this year."

    The 10-strong Sonar fleet consisted of boats chartered by New York Yacht Club members for the regatta. John Bainton (Norwalk, Conn.) won five of the nine races sailed and took the overall win in both the Friday and weekend series.

    "It was just great to be able to do an actual event where we sailed for three days and had some good competition," says Bainton. "Aside from missing the on-shore social part, it was a fantastic time on the water."

    With a breeze that seemed to be always in flux, and the strong current generated by a moon tide running, Bainton said the key to success was his crew's ability to keep their head out of the boat.

    "The wind was very sporadic, so being able to see the wind up the course and read what the current was doing across the course was very important," he says. "One of my crew members, Dale Harper, is actually a harbor pilot for Newport Harbor, so he as tremendous amount of knowledge of how the water moves through the harbor."

    In past years, the Annual Regatta would signal the start of the Newport sailing season, with competitors looking forward to Race Weeks in Newport or Block Island, or a long thrash to Bermuda. This year, however, it closes out the racing season. The summer of 2020 wasn't what anyone expected, but those fortunate enough to participate in the 166th Annual Regatta will head into winter with fresh memories of competition and camaraderie. The 167th edition of the New York Yacht Club's Annual Regatta is scheduled for June 11 to 13, 2021.
