Vineyard Cup Regatta Results
July 15, 2012
MVTimes: The 6th annual Vineyard Cup Regatta started with the fleet slatting through the first leg in light, flukey air, and ended with more than 45 boats galloping toward the Vineyard Haven Harbor finish line in a freshening, but still flukey, late afternoon zephyr
Four different classes proceeded across the start line, positioned just off East Chop, beginning at 1:00 pm. Racing continues tomorrow, beginning with a classic yacht parade of sail at 10 am. Racing will wrap up Sunday (July 15, 2012).
Jim Lengel traveled from Bristol, Rhode Island for the Vineyard Cup. He was at the helm of Top Cat, an Alerion 38 yawl Friday, in a race that tested both patience and skill.
