|Two guys from MYC walked into a sailboat race...|
The Barrington Yacht Club's Fall Sunfish Frostbiting Season got off to a solid start this afternoon, with 9 boats showing up for the first day of racing. Most of the skippers from last year returned, and there was also a newcomer. It turned out to be a beautiful day for racing, with a shifty 10-12 mph breeze out of the east. The shifting winds and the change of tide in the middle of the races made for a wide variety of layline choices at all of the marks.
Andy David took the day with four 1st's and two 2nd's, Bill Brangiforte took 2nd, while MYC's Gary Werden took 3rd. John House (Not to be confused with MYC's John Houstle) took 1st in the B Fleet while MYC's Mark Stoughton took a close 2nd, and Alan Silk took 3rd.
