We are again pleased that Club Nautico Baje in Ensenada joined in the racing action during the 93rd running of this competition. They raced on Sunday February 19 in very light conditions and light rain.
In the Light Division, First Place went to s/v Attempto, a Morgan 27 captained by CNB’s immediate past Commodore Bodo Weber and his wife Cecilia Silva.
In the Cruising Division, First Place honors went to Dolphin, a 1948 Owens 40 Cutter. This all-wooden vessel has been undergoing renovations and upgrades under the watchful eye of Owner/Captain Manuel F. Gutierrez. Dolphin plans to compete in this year’s N2E race, and will have former SCYA Commodore Bill McNamara among its crew.
For 2023 CNB has created these two classes, with slightly longer race courses for the Light division, resulting in fun and more competitive races under the leadership of “Vocal de Vela” (in English, “Voice of Sail”) Victoria Ramos. (This title is sort of a combined Fleet Commodore and Race Committee Chair role, a full member of our board of directors).
Our Commodore, Jorge Hurtado, greeted all participants and members afterwards for our traditional on-the-docks celebration after the regatta, including a delicious carne asada!
