Geneva Spring Regatta Report

by Vincent Porter

 

The Lake Geneva yacht club hosted 35 E-Scows for its annual Spring Regatta, the first time at its new clubhouse. Conditions were warm and sunny but a light, tricky northerly breeze did not allow for very relaxing races to begin the regatta season. Winds ranged from 0 to 15 throughout the weekend, with the average on the lower end. Two races on Saturday and one on Sunday left Vincent Porter and crew Gabe Jostrom and Patrick Mauro the overall winners over Augie Barkow in a close second. 


The real story of the weekend was the emergence of many new names at the top of the leaderboard. Griffin Rolander sailed a very consistent regatta to finish third, while Leslie Poole and Elizabeth Quadracci rounded out the top five. For each team, this was the first time their skipper - crew combination had ever sailed a regatta together. It is a testament both to how many talented crews there are in the e fleet, who have been doing it many years, and also how inspiring it can be to see the right mix really work well together. It was also inspiring to see two female skippers in the top five!


The regatta saw teams travel from as far as Colorado for the weekend. Other notables were Brian porter having to drop out of the first race when his crew had to be sent to the hospital, and defending champ Pete Strothman missing the second race.
