Ben Richardson wins the 2011 NE Masters Championship!

Ben Richardson

Ben is on a roll!

The true sign of a great sailor is one that can dominate in all conditions and Ben has done just that. Fresh off from his win in the Apprentice Master's fleet at the Laser Master Worlds in windy San Francisco, Ben came home to take the win in the super light conditions off of Third Beach in Middletown, RI.

45 sailors came to Third Beach to compete in the 2011 NE Masters Championship and while Third Beach is known for providing a variety of conditions, an unusual weather pattern showed up and light air was all she could squeak out.

Due to the conditions, only 3 races were completed in the two days but the prizes made up for it from a new centerboard and rudder to many more amazing giveaways!

Congratulations to Lynne Shore who finished in 12th as top female in a very competitive fleet!
