2014 E Blue Chip Regatta
Young Harry Melges IV is Putting on a Display
There are now five races complete for the 2014 Blue Chip regatta and the Harry Melges IV has a perfect score of 5 points.
This is almost unheard of at a Blue Chop regatta and although I don't have official race results from the past - I am pretty sure Bill Allen is the only person to have won 5 races and that was surely more than 20 years ago!
We are seeing something special by a special young skipper. Watching Sean's aerial video below (another from Day-1) will give you a glimpse of what we'll be looking at in the Day-2 videos with Harry IV driving both up and down wind at full speed- sorry, you'll have to wait another day.
By the way - it was another epic Blue Chip day of racing with winds in the 20's - and the usual gusty shifty difficult to handle puffs. Some of our most experience and talented skippers bit the dust (isn't that right Tom Burton)

Jimmy Spithill now has the complete E-Scow experience, one we all were hoping he'd avoid - having turtled in the 5th race. The large spectator fleet is clearly rooting for him and he has been responding with some great finishes against some of the best sailors in the E-Scow class.

National Class E-Scow Association
The National Class E-Scow Association (NCESA) was founded in 1959 to promote the sport of E-Scow sailing.
It exists to serve all regions of the country where E-Scow sailing is pursued. There are four types of membership in the NCESA: Boat Owners, Regular, Associate, and Crew.
The NCESA is supported through membership fees. We are also a 501c3 non-profit organization, and donations are tax deductable.

Calendar Updates for 2014
The 2014 Calendar is in the process of being updated. Please note the dates and locations are tentative until I get a confirmation from the region/club holding the event.
I am asking that clubs get back to me before the end of January so that people can have some confidence the calendar is correct after January.
Thank you for your help and support.
