The 31st Annual American Yacht Club Fall Regatta began with an afternoon of racing in a light breeze, followed by a reunion of sailors and old friends who reunited after not seeing each other since. 2019. With the option of choosing between 10:55 am or 12:55 pm for the first warning signal. , the race committee opted for a later start time based on forecasts and made the announcement the day before the race. This allowed the competitors to spend more time with their families, get ready for the race, or just relax on Saturday mornings.

On day one, the south course was able to complete one race and the east course finished two. Sunday winds were still favorable at 15 knots with good sailing conditions, offsetting the lighter breeze on Saturday.

At the end of day one, former AYC commodore William Ketcham on Maxine (AYC) held the lead in the One Design J 44 races with two balls, an impressive four points better than any other boat in this division on the course is. Maxine was able to maintain her lead until Day 2 with almost all the balls. Commodore Thomas Blackwell on Breakaway (AYC) gained ground between Day 1 and Day 2 and now sits second in that division.

Justin Scagnelli and Tim Price on Albondigas (HYC) and Lawrence Cutler and Andrew Weiss on One Too Many (STC) lead the J 88 class on the south course, currently tied at 9 points. Robert & Libby Alexander on Byte (AYC) and Vlad Shablinsky and Sam Wright on Group 5 (NEKA) are also tied in the ORC in doubles and both finish the weekend with 3 points each.

With all of these tight results so far, more races in weekend 2 are eagerly awaited.

The weather on Saturday turned out to be perfect for the AYC to host the post-race Rocking Regatta party on the flagpole lawn. Everyone enjoyed a musical performance by local band Cover Story, lawn games, free beer donated by Doyle Sails and Carpentry Classics, craft beer tastings featuring the top two contenders for the AYC Ale vote and the bar and lounge. AYC x Chandon Garden Spritz. Post-race gatherings will be held after each race day during the fall regatta, ensuring lots of socialization and fun for competitors and spectators.
