The father and son team from Sakonnet Yacht Club in Rhode Island took home the 2020 East Coast Championship trophy after three days of exciting and close racing at Hampton Yacht Club. Friday offered up winds in excess of 25 knots with some gusts in race three over 30! Saturday and Sunday morning (before the front) offered up manageable but windy conditions as well for a total of nine races to complete the regatta.
Racing was tight, going into the final race Ingalls held a one point lead over HYC team Clark Hayes and Eric Schwab, Henry Amthor and Chris Pfrang had a close battle with Dave Kirkpatrick and Parker Colantuano from Sail Newport. In the end Henry and Chris ended up fourth, Dave and Parker third, Clark and Eric took second, and the father son pair of John and Luke Ingalls took first.
Whitney Hayes and Anna Patterson from HYC took home the trophy for the highest finishing All-Women’s Team and Benton Amthor and Marcus Adams took home the highest finishing
