More racing news from the East coast as two Carbon 32s compete in Larchmont Yacht Club’s 59th Annual Edlu Distance Race. The race garnered a lot of attention as it was the first event in the US to pioneer the new “Plus One” concept of racing where boats are sailed short handed in an attempt to increase participation by not requiring everyone to put together large crews in order to sail their boats.
After their victory the weekend before in the AYC Spring Series “Six Brothers” finished a respectable 3rd in the 15 boat PHRF class around the 32 nautical mile course. “Weegie”, on one of their first sails of the 2014 season finished mid fleet in the 15 boat Double Handed PHRF class. Full Regatta Results.
Here’s a video from the foggy start of the race on board Weegie…
