Report from Quantum Key West Race Week 2016

With Storm Trysail Club taking over the mangement of Quantum Key West Race Week this year, the organizers had their hands full with decisions as high winds prevailed during the week. The opening practice day was cancelled as well as the Tuesday and Friday race days for IRC 2.

Stephen Polk of Bayview Yacht Club (Detroit, MI) participated in IRC 2 with his Swan 42, TSUNAMI.  9 races were completed, just shy of the goal of 10 races.   TSUNAMI saved her best for the last day, Thursday, with 3-2-4 finishes.

NYYC Awards are Presented to Swan 42 Owners in New York City

Last week, the New York Yacht Club recognized the sailing achievements of skippers at their formal awards presentation in the New York City Clubhouse.  Four Swan 42 owners were among those to receive awards for victories in the 2015 sailing season.

Paul Zabetakis (FL) was awarded the United States Navy Cup for his win with IMPETUOUS at the NYYC 161st Annual Regatta Presented by Rolex in June.  He recorded 4-3-1-1 in the two-day series.

The Swan 42 U.S. Nationals was held in July and Charles Kenahan (MA) helmed MAHALO to a first place finish to win the Enchantress Trophy.  Over the course of four days of racing and nine races, MAHALO had scored 2-2-1-2-3-5-1-1-4.   

Ken Colburn (MA) and "Appartion" was the big winner of the night taking home no less than four trophies as a result of his prowess on the NYYC Cruise in August.  "Apparition" won the 16-Point Trophy, the Royal Yacht Squadron Cup as Overall Winner of the Squadron Runs in Class 1 of the Annual Cruise, the Astor Cup for Class 1 IRC, and the coveted Queen's Cup. 

Congratulations to all our Swan 42 owners for an outstanding 2015 season.
