Wild Thing Wins 2013 BCYC Ocean Racing Seriesposted: 12/26/2013
Bahia Corinthian YC’s Ocean Racing Series offered a unique challenge to racers, because of the variety of races and distances sailed each day, organizers explained. The series included four random leg races (including a two-day race to Avalon and back) and four days of windward/leeward racing, spread across the first half of the racing year.
The winner of Races 1-4 was awarded the Humphrey Bogart Trophy, the winner of Races 5-8 was awarded the Hugh Angelman Trophy and the winner of races 1-8 was awarded the Ocean Racing Series Trophy. With seven first-place wins, Wild Thing won all three trophies.
This year’s Ocean Racing Series will begin on Jan, 18, and registration is now open. For more information, visit bcyc.org.
