Mike Matan at the 2009 NE Masters
The word is in from one sailor that the conditions at the 2010 AC ’s were, ‘ very windy and choppy with lots of carnage.’ Apparently day two saw the breeze between 15- 25 knots with higher gusts. After 4 races, Mike Matan of Cedar Point YC took away 3rd place overall in the Laser Standard fleet (1 point out of 2nd). Nice job Mike! Also congratulations to Rachel Bryer of Conanicut YC and FAST sailing for winning the 4.7 division with 4 bullets!
Other D7 sailors that broke the top 10 are Brian Fisher (Newport Fleet 413) in 7th and Brian Raney (Cedar Point YC ) with 8th in the Standard division. In the Radial division Fred Abeis (Cedar Point YC) cracked the top ten with a 9th place overall.
