Joy Wins 2008 Brodie Cup in Ti Race

Joy Bill Dutcher’s J/22 Joy won in the Spinnaker fleet of the 35th Annual Lake George / Ticonderoga Race. Happy Days took the non-Spinnaker fleet, Revolution won the Sprint fleet, and Triceratops took the multi-hull fleet. Check out the complete results, and photos from the start by Trish McCluskey. A total of 18 boats competed in the four fleets. The race began with a breeze out of the southeast, and remained light and shifty all the way up the lake. Other than the short upwind leg at the start to round the north Canoe Island mark, the race was virtually all reaching, both up and down the lake. Many wind-less patches on the lake early, and then evening brought a few storms and accompanying big gusty winds. All boats finished by 11 pm.
