|This was the finishing order almost all year in the Double Secret Series. |
L to R Gary Werden, Mark Stoughton and Bernadette Levesque (you can only see her bow here).
Putting in strong performances week after week, Gary Werden has taken the first Massapoag Yacht Club Double Secret Series Championship. Massapoag runs a multi class pursuit race on Wednesday nights during June, July and August. To make things more interesting, The Double Secret Series is a race within a race that uses only the Sunfish class scores.
In the seven weeks that there were two or more Sunfish skippers racing, Gary took first place all seven times, including two overall 1sts in the pursuit racing, beating the multi-class fleet. Mark Stoughton followed Gary around the course almost every week, taking five second place finishes and two 3rds. Bernadette Levesque finished one point ahead of John Houstle to take third.
The Double Secret Wednesday night racing series is over for 2014, but our Saturday series is still going strong, as is the multi-class Sunday series. Don't forget our Annual Regatta is coming up in just under a month, on September 6-7, the week after Labor Day.
