2008 Atlantic Coast Championships, Brant Beach, NJ, USA

Las 12, 13 august was the Atlantic Coas Championship in Brant Beach NJ. This event is one of the most important in the East Coast of North America. At this regatta haved people from others countries like Puerto Rico, Ecuador, France and Canada, in the laser fleet with 95 Radials, 63 Full Rigs, and 17 Laser 4.7 = total of 175 Lasers.
The FBYC Team was with Kyle Swenson, Michael Keane, Mary Catherine Buhl, and Dingo (Coach) and the most important part of the team = the parents!!! Big Help!!!
The championship held 7 races with winds between 10-14 knots in trapeze race course like international regattas and around 1 hour each race. Like home!!!
The sailors of the FBYC make a good experience in this kind of regattas, and make a big steep to improved skills. Not easy conditions, with some little waves and sea plants make to check the centerboard and ruder every 10 seconds to dont loose speed. The wind and the current make another challenger for the races.
The top posisions in Radial Fleet was fighting between Puerto Rico, Ecuador and some others from USA. The Puerto Rico Guys make diference at last day demostrating his experience in this regattas. From Ecuador, Edgar Diminich (expert opti sailor and new in radial class) start like one of the favorites and with some problems on last day and protest finish on 9 overall. PUR finish first and second.
The suprise of this Regatta was Dylan Finneran from Toms River NJ, finish in 3 overall. His coach is Juan Pablo Carranza from Argentina.
Next week we go trainig together with Juan at some regattas on NJ and MA

Thanks to all people from Brant Beach, the members of the club, Lisa, Ed, all people there. Make me feel like home, or maybe better???!!!. Thanks!!! Dingo
