At the end of four days of racing and with a total of eleven races sailed in the widest possible range of conditions, Terry Hutchinson and his crew aboard USA 751 Quantum Racing, are the new at the 2008 Melges 24 North American Champions.
Terry Hutchinson showed his true class today, on the third day of the 2008 Melges 24 North American Championships in Annapolis, Md. Faced with two light airs races whist leading a major championship, others may have crumbled under the pressure.
The Eastport Yacht Club race committee got into the spirit of things this morning by welcoming all the competitors to the race course with a Halloween pumpkin on the roof of the committee boat.
Happy Halloween everyone! Here in Annapolis the sun is shining this morning and the temperatures are rising at last with a promise of mid 60s by this afternoon.
The Race Committee stepped up the pace today at the 2008 Melges 24 North American Championship, running four excellent races (race four to seven in the 12 race series) in winds ranging from 10 15 knots.
