2013 Gravy Bowl

Hunterdon Sailing Club, Clinton NJ

August 17

An interesting day weather-wise, to say the least! The wind speed at the 11AM skippers' meeting was 0-1 mph, and, after a one hour postponement, it jumped up to a solid 1-2 mph, with enough hopeful clues to send the Jets out for the first of 3 races, during which the winds settled down to 1-5 mph, with 0-120 degree shifts at random times. So "luck" and close attention both paid off with the 7 boat fleet generally together around the windward - leeward courses. Spinnakers were advantageous but only until the next 90 degree shift. Simon and Ashley frequently demonstrated EXTREME roll tacks, and in race 3, took 20 minutes on the last 50 yards and still won!

2013 Gravy Bowl

At the awards presentation, Nicky presented Brent Barbehenn with the newly revised perpetual Gravy Bowl. It has twice the engraving space, needed due to its many decades of use! The perpetual Gravy Ladle was presented to crew Lucy Bertocci. And everyone thanked the expert Race Committee: Rich Baumann, Ray Buchanan, and Mary. A cookout followed at Charlie Englerís to wrap up a FUN DAY!
