Cedar Point Juniors Rock at JSA Fall Meeting
4 of our 10 Junior PHRF sailors accepted their 2nd place in Dorade Trophy, 1st place in Beach Point Overnight Race (Class A) and the JSA Seamanship Trophy at Larchmont Yacht Club on Wednesday, October 29. This award is based on a club's cumulative record in both the Dorade and Beach Point races and the teams' cumulative scores on both the JSA Navigation and Seamanship Tests-- which means the kids rock both on and off the water! CPYC has won this award only twice in its long JSA history -- the last time in 2005 when the juniors won the Dorade and Beach Point with Revelation. Any big boaters out there looking for crew???

Dylan won with an overall regatta score of 97.5% (translation: he won almost everything he went to!) This marks the first time since the Bell Trophy's inception in 1950 that a CPYC junior has won it.
