  • Casco Bay Open
    Another gorgeous fall Maine day for the racers in the Casco Bay Open!  Thirteen teams competed for a qualifying berth for ACCs, and it became apparent that the fight was between Yarmouth and Duxbury.  The teams were tied throughout most of the day, with each team leading the other by a point or two after each race.  Casco Bay provided plenty of breeze, about 10-12 knots building to 14-16 in the afternoon.  There was one race where Duxbury did not race because they got into a boat which had been recently capsized by Falmouth but were unable to get the water out of it prior to the start.  RC awarded them breakdown points for that race.  Yarmouth's A division of Ben/Isabella were holding their own against Duxbury until that same race where they placed 10th and Duxbury was awarded a 4th for breakdown points.  Yarmouth's B division of Emma/Harland had a couple of firsts, seconds and thirds, although some errors cost them some other races where they placed 7th.  After hearing some protests, the results were announced, and Duxbury took the win with 59 points and Yarmouth had 68.  Congrats to Duxbury on their win, and thank you to Falmouth for hosting the racing and a lunch for all sailors.

  • SailMaine 420 Fall Series #1
    This was a quick regatta -- with only two races -- because the regatta was called due to thunderstorms around 11 AM.  15 boats competed, and Yarmouth had two boats.  Our team of Sophia/Mackenzie came in 6th, and our other team of Nate/Salome came in 15th.  Quite a few capsizes in the fleet on the way out to the race course due to puffy winds, and everyone was wet at the end when the rains came pouring down.

  • Clipper Challenge
    YST hosted the Annual Clipper Challenge on Sept 10th, and entered two teams in the regatta.  Ten other teams competed on a lovely warm gorgeous fall day in Maine.  Although the PRO Kevin Schwarm had to wait for two hours in the morning for wind, the afternoon brought enough wind for 6 races in each division.  A sandwich buffet lunch was provided by Yarmouth parents, organized by the capable Stacey Pardales.  Yarmouth Clipper Ships team was 2nd (Ashley/Matt and Abby/Nastia) following Falmouth which won the regatta.    It should be noted that Abby/Nastia had the win in the first race of their division.  Yarmouth's other team (Ben/Harland and Parker/Emi) placed 7th.  Thanks to all the parents who worked on the regatta and provided lunch.

  • Polar Bear Open
    Yarmouth participated in the Annual Polar Bear Open hosted by Bowdon College on Sept. 4th at their sailing center located in Harpswell.  There was light shifty breeze almost all day, and it was almost a matter of luck finding consistent wind.  Yarmouth's B division of Griffin/Anna posted two bullets (firsts) and were second in their division.  A division of Ben/Isabella had a difficult first race, but placed consistently near the top of the 11 boat fleet.  This was a qualifying regatta, which was won by Falmouth for the 2nd year in a row.  Yarmouth place 3rd (35 points), behind Falmouth (22 points) and Duxbury (23 points).

  • Fall 2016
    YST welcomed back 13 veteran sailors, some of whom do not sail in the spring due to another sport played with a hard ball.  We welcomed three new sailors, Vika, Matt, and Ashley to the team, as well as HMS sailors Nate and Maddie.  The team is almost perfectly balanced with an even number of skippers and crew.  We look forward to a great fall season with a full team with deep talent!
