CYC News:

Chester Yacht Club is excited to report that CYC Junior Member Will McInnes achieved an overall 22nd place out of 400 boats at the just-completed New England Optimist Championships in Newport, RI.  Will was the top-ranked Canadian and scored a 5th, 6th, 7th, 8th and 11th place in each of the five races at this regatta, one of the largest for the class in North America. The regatta was split into four fleets of about 100 boats apiece in order to facilitate the large number of competitors. Racers had to contend with tricky currents, light winds and wind shifts that, on occasion, swung almost 180 degrees. Jeb Bechtel also represented Chester at the New Englands coming in an impressive 111th overall. Congratulations Jeb!  Will is representing the Chester Yacht Club as one of five Canadian qualifiers for Team Canada at the World Opti Championships in San Isidro, Argentina in October, 2014.
