Sailing on Skimmer

Virtual Scrapbook

Skimmer is a J-120, owned by Ted and Sharon Sybertz, of Sudbury, Massachusetts. It sails with a PHRF-NE spinnaker rating of 51.

The 1999 sailing season found me onboard Skimmer for two races, the Conanicut Yacht Club's 1999 Around the Island Race, held on 5 September; and the Newport Yacht Club's 1999 Columbus Day Regatta, postponed to 10 October.

On the 5th, I trimmed main. We placed 6th on corrected time for the Class A Spinnaker Division, finishing the 18.1 mile course in 2:35:15. The results for this race can be found at:

I was aboard as navigator for the Newport Yacht Club's 1999 Columbus Day Regatta; we took a second place finish at Block Island, by two boatlengths. You can follow our track on two chart plots, one of the upper half of the race to Block Island, and the lower half of the race.
