Massapoag @ Wequaquet

Sunfish Ruled the roost at Wequaquet Lake Yacht Club this weekend

This week, MYC's Kevin Buruchian and Mark Stoughton visited the Wequaquet Lake Yacht Club in Hyannis for their 50th Annual Sunfish Regatta, which also served as the second 2013 Sunfish Regional Championship Regatta. A total of 31 boats showed up on the line in the open division, plus about 15 Sunfish competed in a large youth division for two days of racing.

The weather cooperated nicely, with a sea breeze filling in on both days, Saturday from the south, and Sunday from the north. (After all, it's Cape Cod, where every breeze is a sea breeze.) Racing was close among groups of competitors, which allowed small rivalries to develop among sailors who don't normally race together.

The field was strong and deep, with almost all of the competitors on the Northeast Sunfish Circuit showing up, plus a few competitors from as far away as New York. Bill Brangiforte took first, while Massapoag Yacht Club made good showings in their respective areas, with Kevin Buruchian took 4th in a tie-breaker, while Mark Stoughton bested the local non-circuit WLYC talent in close racing.

Kevin Buruchian is all smiles                                                Mark Stoughton wins a close one

  1. You missed out the most important thing. How was the "adult bingo" on Saturday night?

  2. I was busy sampling the Hyannis night life, but I heard that the place was packed. They raised $500 for their juniors sailing program.
