Blackhawk Pips Arbitrage, Wins Phyllis Kleinman Swiftsure Regatta

Nineteen Fleet One J105s joined an 8-boat IRC division in the St Francis Yacht Club‘s inaugural Phyllis Kleinman Swiftsure Regatta on Saturday and Sunday May 19th and 20th. The weekend weather was beautiful and uncharacteristically warm with clear skies and breeze from around 15kts in the mornings to 22kts with 27kt gusts late on Sunday afternoon. Racing was very close all weekend with few uncontested break-aways. Going into the last race, any of the top six boats could have won the regatta – Blackhawk pulled out a race bullet and sealed overall victory as Jam Session turned in a disappointing ninth. Bruce Stone’s Arbitrage found their form on Sunday and leveraged consistently strong finishes to take second overall. Risk, Mojo and Jam Session filled out the top 5 places. Race tracking replays by Kattack are already posted along with relative speed reports.
