2017 Janeway Series

At the end of September the Janeway Memorial Regatta at CSHBC finished off the 2017 season. With only seven boats, this year was not as well attended as usual, a victim of unlucky timing. Still the ever-hospitable host club members went out of their way to make all welcome.

It was breezy on Saturday, with a good 15-18 knots of wind, but by Sunday morning this had totally died away. The wind blew fitfully from almost every direction in the last race, never more than a couple of knots, and the final weather leg was completed running under spinnaker.

Overall winner was Guy Gurney sailing A16 Savvy, crewed by John Withington, Bill Stout and Holly Spezzano. Tom Carroll of CSHBC started well by winning the first race in A56 Tara, and ended up second on points. Third, and surely the most impressive, were Stephen Jay and Mark Feck who raced the series with only the two of them aboard A148 Alliance.


2016 Ted Janeway Memorial Regatta

Ten boats competed in the final event of the year, the Ted Janeway Memorial Regatta at Cold Spring Harbor Beach Club, September 24-25. Conditions were Long Island Sound in its most challenging mood, with the light wind shifting hugely in direction, seemingly at random, and a lumpy sea. The only skipper who seemed to understand what was happening and deal with it well was Scott Reichhelm in A142 Shucks. With his crew of Paula Olson, Patrick Wyllie and Rob Fowler, he scored a very consistent 1,3,1 to dominate the series. Second was Charlie Langalis in A2 Bruté, third Guy Gurney in A16 Savvy.


2014 Ted Janeway Memorial Regatta

2014 Ted Janeway Memorial Regatta was held September 27 & 28 at Cold Spring Harbor Beach Club. Winds and seas were very calm (unless you were at the Valencia Tavern late Saturday night) but we managed one good race on Saturday afternoon in the Sound. Congratulations to Scott Reichhelm for his second consecutive win, and to all 8 Connecticut crews who came across for the weekend. PRO Harry Morgan and the staff of the CSHBC did another great job organizing racing, meals and a very fun time. Campbell Cups were awarded to new owners and first time attendees Frank Sparks and Eli Hazan from CPYC.


2013 Ted Janeway Memorial Regatta

Congratulations to Scott Reichhelm (A142) and crew for winning the 2013 Janeway.


2012 Ted Janeway Memorial Series

The 2012 Ted Janeway Memorial Series was sailed Sep. 22-23 out of Cold Spring Harbor, with 11 Atlantics participating, representing 4 fleets. We were blessed with two glorious fall days. Saturday was warm and windy with Southerly winds gusting over 20 knots. Despite a slightly delayed start due to delays on I95 in Connecticut, 7 CT boats met up with 4 from CSH off of Stamford and completed two races in the Sound. A dozen or so CSHBC members graciously provided housing for the visitors, and Chef Jason served up a delicious dinner in the clubhouse. At the dinner, the CSH fleet awarded a Campbell Cup to Rob Coster for his efforts in organizing 3 boats from Madison, CT to venture down for the series -- a first for them, and for the Janeway.

Sunday morning started off looking daunting -- much chillier with a piping Northwesterly wind. But, following a hearty breakfast at the club, the wind mitigated as the sun warmed up, and the fleet sailed out to the harbor entrance and gathered on the starting line. The wind was quite variable -- both in strength and direction -- but it was a good 5 leg race and the fleet never got too spread out.

Many thanks are due to PRO Gary Knapp (CSHBC Club Manager) and Mike McCrory from the CSHBC staff for running the races -- as well as to Doug May for lending his Glacier Bay as a mark boat and to those who assisted on Race Committee, etc. Congratulations to winner Guy Gurney sailing A128 Cassidy out of Cedar Point. We hope that any of you who missed it will be there next year!
