2012 Mallory Results

The 2012 Mallory trophy was sailed on the crowded and beautiful body of water just North of Downtown Seattle—Lake Union.  The regatta was hosted at The Center for Wooden Boats, on the south shore of the lake, which provided great viewing, wonderful facilities, and quick rotating.  Undoubtedly, the star of the show was the weather.  Both days saw cloudless skies and temperatures in the 70s. The wind delivered out of the Northwest between 5 and 12 knots. Perhaps most surprisingly, the only thing falling from the sky on this early May weekend in the Pacific Northwest were the dozens of landing seaplanes.

Sailors from across the Nation competed in two fleets of boats. A-division sailed Vanguard 15s, and B-Division sailed Flying Juniors. An entire rotation of 20 races in each division was completed by early afternoon on Sunday.  Regatta PRO and multiple Olympic Medalist, Jonathan Mckee, commented several times on the organization, attitudes, and high level of sailing that these competitors exhibited throughout the event.  A sure sign that the sport we love is in good hands.

Congratulations to the entire Point Loma High School team, and coach Steve Hunt, on a decisive Victory. Top honors in both fleets also went to Point Loma.  A-Division sailors include: Olin Paine, Johannes Mcelvain, and Trevor Hecht.  Sailing in B-Division were Jake Reynolds and Maddy Brownsea.

Special thanks to The Center For Wooden Boats, Seattle Yacht Club, Sail Sand Point, all the NWISSA Schools and Volunteers that spent hours and hours preparing for the event, Dick Rose and his team of Judges, and the competitors for sailing a great regatta!  The event could never have happened without the dedication and hard work of Burke Thomas, Scott Boye, and Sugar Flanigan.
