The 2009 Annapolis to Newport Race will begin on Friday, June 5, 2009. Approximately 60 boats will make their way down the Chesapeake Bay and then up to Newport, RI. Please feel free to register and post race-related comments to our discussion board.
FYI for those who do not receive updates from Annapolis Yacht Club By 0630 this morning (Saturday) all of the boats had exited the Chesapeake. The breeze was still northeast so everybody was hard on the wind. Only a few boats had tacked onto starboard, heading toward the coast. Most elected to stay on port. The fleet stretched from the Chesapeake light tower to Rambler, off Atlantic City, but well east of the rhumb line. The forecast for Rhode Island Sound tonight is for southwest 5-10 knots. So some time this evening there should be a big shift.
If you’ve looked at the tracker, you may have noticed two boats in the Bay. Anema&Core did not start. The Jackal is returning to Annapolis after withdrawing with “mechanical problems”.
