The last race in Ocean City was the Material World Regatta
held in May.
Keith is correct, the course was windward/leward with a
gate in the middle. It is much easier to set and emliminates
the reach parade. Unfortunately it's not as much fun, especially
for heavy guys, if you can't plane, off the wind on a DEEEP reach.
Bottled water was available at the race site all day Saturday.
I am not sure they had any on Sunday.
There was a barbecue after Saturday's racing at the sailing site
(Mellow Beach Yacht Club) that included hamburgers, hotdogs, and
lots of salad stuff. Beer and sodas were also provided.
Prizes were awarded to 1st, 2nd, and 3rd in IMCO, Sport, and
Open Fleet. There were not any 7.5 class prizes, masters
prizes, youths, or more detailed break outs.
The July race likely will be very hot with 5-10 knots
of wind. It is "possible" that it will be windy, you
never know. The last four days there have been steady
25 knot southerly breezes in Ocean City.
The East Coast Championship is July 9-10 and will be located
at the Mellow Beach Yacht Club located at 47th st in Ocean
City, MD. Entry fee is $50. Several parties and meals are
planned. Contact Sailing Etc at 410-723-1144 for more
