27 Points separated HRRT Opti RWB first place finisher, James Allgeier, from his closest opponent, Jake Beaver of Severn Sailing Association. James, Jake, and third place finisher, Bo Angus of Fishing Bay Yacht Club, have all been at the top of the Opti RWB fleets so far this summer. However, HRRT member James Allgeier was on fire this weekend and was the rightful winner of the 2020 Commonwealth Cup, the State Championship of Virginia! The Commonwealth was hosted by Norfolk Yacht and Country Club. In the thirty-four boat fleet that consisted of the best from Fishing Bay, Annapolis Yacht Club, Carolina Yacht Club and many more, Allgeier’s worst finish was a sixth place in race 5 which became his drop. His scoreline consisted of four first place finishes and two seconds for a total of only 8 points in the seven race regatta. The consistency in the scoreline shows how well this competitor had the course dialed in.
HRRT Team members Parker Moore (5th), Leila Pfrang (6th), and Amelon Rule (7th) also made the top ten and sailed a great event. There was only a three point spread between them, so no doubt the racing was tight!
