Opti-A Stage Harbor Results

After a postponement and some severe thunder storms, the Opti A team faced the fog in Chatham.   Five W.D. sailors, Sebastian Halpern Reiss, Jake Hawk, Ed Goggin and Matthew Sweeney in the championship fleet and C.J. McKenna in the green fleet, battled some building wind and had some great finishes.  After three races on the championship line, West Dennis sailors racked up a first place finish and a second place finish as well as many top ten finishes. 

On the green line C.J. came away with a second place finish, a third place finish and another top ten finish.  At the end of the day WD sailors came home with some hardware! Sebastian finished fourth in red fleet, and C.J. in his first regatta finished third in the green fleet!  The other West Dennis sailors also had amazing finishes, Matthew and Jake finished top ten in red fleet, and Ed finished 17th out of 38 boats in blue fleet. 

Great first regatta of the season, and we look forward to great finishes at the invitational on Monday!!
