Vineyard Cup Fun & Games!

J/100 sailing upwind (Vineyard Haven, MA)- The 25th Anniversary of The Vineyard Cup- hosted by Sail Martha’s Vineyard, began 11 years ago, the event brings in the revenue to afford their sailing programs that have expanded to reach more than 400 kids each year for summer sailing program alone. J/Boat owners from across the cruising and racing spectrum helped to support the organization this past weekend.

In the PHRF Non-Spinnaker Class, Phil & Rob Hale’s J/100 TANGO from Vineyard Haven nearly pulled off a win in their class, missing that goal by only one point. Tom Welch’s J/100 ESCAPE from Oak Bluffs placed fifth in class.

The PHRF Spinnaker Class saw John Ryder’s J/70 AMONINI become the David vs. Goliath in their class, taking second overall against boats up to 42 feet!  Fourth were Matt & Lisa Schmitt’s J/105 HARDTACK and Ed Lobo’s J/105 WATERWOLF placed sixth.  For more Vineyard Cup sailing information
