Optimist Sailing Awards Presented

October 29, 2011

The Bermuda Optimist Dinghy Association [BODA] completed the 15 Race Hardy Ltd. Autumn Series 1 on Sunday [Oct.27] in extremely light and variable conditions. Officials were unable to get sustained winds from a consistent direction after the first race of the day and called it quits early in the afternoon. A prize presentation was held at the host club, RBYC once the scores were confirmed.

In the Gold Fleet, Chase Cooper [21pts] edged out Rory Caslin [23pts] to win the series by two points after the pair were tied going into the final day. There was also an overall tie for 3rd between Ceci Wollmann and Antonio Bailey, both with 38 points. Wollmann was able to clinch 3rd on “countback” scoring.

In the Silver Fleet, Matilda Nicholls took home the top honours with a resounding victory over the fleet. Second was Kieran Swann followed by George Buckley.
