Cherry Pie Regatta 2014, an overview of the event by Larry Gellar

From the following article on
Larry Gellar gives us an overview of the 2014 Cherry Pie Regatta Sarasota Sailing Squadron:

Fun times and tough competition at the Cherry Pie Multihull Regatta. The second annual Cherry Pie multihull regatta was held this past weekend (February 7 – 9) at the Sarasota Sailing Squadron in Sarasota Florida. This years’ event featured sixteen trimarans participating in 11 races over 3 days, with dinners and entertainment in the evenings.

With shifty winds varying from 5 – 15 knots over the three days, our IRO Irene McNeil and her crew of volunteers worked tirelessly to move gates, pins and marks to ensure top competition. As a result, the fleet, which was broken down into three classes (Open, Corinthian and 24/27) saw fierce competition with tight starts, close crossings and crowded mark roundings on each leg.

After 11 races, the top three boats were separated by only 5 points, with Tom Reese taking first on FLIGHT SIMULATOR, Ryan & Todd Howe taking second on PANIC BUTTON, and Kathryn Garlick coming in third on EVOLUTION. The Corinthian Fleet was won by Brian Broad on THIRD TRI, and the 24/27 Fleet was won by Jim Bourgoin on FIRST TRI. Click here to view full results!
