On-Water Race Commentary, Tunes and 25¢ Beers

Our eighth annual Baldwin Cup, presented by by JPMorgan Chase, is off and running! Fluky but building winds started Friday off or as Staff Commodore Gale Nye Pinckney of NHYC’s Team Thunder put it, “It was shifty as all get out, but clocking slowly to the right, but the weather is shaping up to be the best of any Baldwin Cup Team Race to date. A huge thanks goes out to the pit crew, that as always totally dialed in the boats, and to the volunteers who give their time to make this three-day event possible.”

We’ve completed 51 races, with 15 races remaining in the first Round Robin. Team Thunder, Newport’s defending team from last year, is in the lead after day one with a perfect record of 7 wins, with Larchmont Yacht Club in second with five wins and two losses. Tied for third are the Balboa Yacht Club, NHYC Lightning, Seattle Yacht Club and Southern Yacht Club. In total, we’ll between 130 to 140 races.
