Race to Kingston Faces Bumps

SinC Race to Kingston Burgees

August 16, 2023

At the Friday kickoff, Emily Gosling (brand ambassador) accepts the MCC burgee from Roman Masley (MCC Commodore) with Andrew Holmes (Goslings International Brand Director holding the KYC burgee), Chris Bobyk (MCC Fleet Captain).

After a welcome dinner, skippers briefing and a good measure of socializing last Friday evening, the Race 2 Kingston departed on Saturday from the MCC/EYC fixed marks.

The quick report on Sunday from Joe Malon of MCC:

“We are now in Kingston and all competitors that could finish have done so. The race, as predicted by our meteorologist, was intense as the fleet started on the north edge of a storm cell in little, then 13 knots of wind and battled squall lines and confused seas on the trip here. Everyone survived but we had five retirements!”
