Vaporize Wins Corinthian Race 3

In a made-to-order day for Dave Dougall’s Vaporize, Dave and crew breezed around a triangular course from Diamond Point to South Canoe, Hogback, and start, twice around for an easy victory in less than an hour. John Tattant on Catchin’ Js was close behind and took second, Moriah finished in third. Back in competition, Sam Walters’ Happy Days was the only boat sailing in the non-spinnaker fleet.

Catchin’ Js Wins Around the Islands Race

Light and variable winds filled in to a steady northwest breeze to kick off the annual Corinthian Around the Islands Race. From a start near Hogback Reef the fleet headed north around Huckleberry Islan, reached over to Dome Island and then back south to Hogback. John and Cathy Tarran, sailing on Catchin’ Js, took top honors over Cut Loose by 41 seconds. Moriah was third and Revolution was fourth. Brad Hague on Cosmic Corner lead Em Jay around the course in the non-spinnaker division. See complete results on

Ellen Cantrell on Jam Wins Women’s Race

The Corinthian’s annual Women on the Helm race featured light but consistent winds, and the four boats that competed sailed around Cotton Point, Hogback and back to the start for a great afternoon sail. Ellen Cantrell skippered Jam, winning the start and never looking back for a wire-to-wire win. Cathy Tarrant on Catchin’ Js took second place and in a come-from-behind finish Crystal Gramaldi on Cut Loose nudged out Moriah by seconds to take third. View complete results

Dougall on Vaporize Takes First Corinthian Race

The Corinthians’ first race of the season turned out to be a drifter, with only three of eleven starters completed a shortened course around Cotton Point. Defying the fickle winds, Dave Dougall on Vaporize finished first on corrected time, with James Looby’s Lily James second and John Dickinson on Cut Loose third. View complete results

Other news: At the after-race party it was decided that entry fees for the Ti Race would also include membership for all Corinthian activities — no additional dues necessary. For those who did not participate in the Ti Race and wish to contribute to the Corinthians, send your check for $30 payable to LGCYC to Nate Dickinson, 257 Vaughn Road, Hudson Falls, NY 12839

Joy Wins Ti Race

Bill Dutcher on Joy won the spinnaker fleet and Brodie Cup in the 2010 Ti Race, in one of the shorter races (and one of the best sailing days) in recent years. The Corinthians received more than $1,000 in donations from participants and sponsors, which will benefit the Y-Knot Sailing program. The non-spinnaker fleet was won by Jack Haanen on Dutch Treat, the sprint fleet winner was Rik Alexanderson on Brass Ring, and Bob Glandon on Mouse3 won the multihull fleet. Congratulations to all the winners and competitors, who made for an amazing day on the lake.

Ti Race and First Corinthian Race Set

Kyle Levoy is kicking off the season for the Corinthians, making plans for the Ti Race on Saturday, June 19. And Nate Dickinson is planning the same Corinthian racing format as last year: a five-race series with both spinnaker and non-spinnaker fleets, plus a Women’s Race and a Single-Handed Race. The first race of the series will be held on Sunday, June 27. There will be an organizational get-together after the races at the Dickinson’s to make plans for the rest of the season.
