Tom Price won the first Gibson Island One Design Invitational with three first place finishes sailing Egret, one of the oldest boats in the fleet. Sandy Yellott of Nantucket Yacht Club was second, and Courtenay Jenkins was third. Tom Lemaire of Sail Newport was fourth.

Fine weather and moderate wind on Saturday enabled the race committee to get off four races. One race was run on Sunday. Heavy winds on the Magothy River prevented a second race.

GIYS 3 – MCYS 1

Mini Cruise

September 20th-21st

The September Mini-Cruise will stay in the Magothy River, anchoring and/or rafting in Forked Creek (on the south side of the Magothy, just past Ulmstead Point – opposite Broad Creek).

The Cruise Committee chose this destination to encourage as much participation as possible from power boaters and sail boaters alike. The location makes it easy to come and go for those who might want to come just for cocktails and then head back, as well as for those who are participating in, or want to observe, the Swim Across America event on Sunday morning, September 21st, in Eagle Cove (High Tide Farm, formerly known as Waltjen-Shedlick Farm). Not to mention those who would like to spend a lovely evening/night with fellow boaters in a really pretty and well-protected creek. Dog-friendly to boot!

So mosey on up the Magothy on Saturday, September 20th, taking time to duck into those coves and creeks you’ve never explored, and join GIYS in Forked Creek in the afternoon/evening, for a rollicking good time.
