The Chesapeake A30 Association sent 8 sailors north to try to win the Syronelle Trophy. We had two days of great wind and great one-design sailing, and the victory was on the edge, but in the end we won and the trophy is heading south for the first time in 20 years.
Details will follow but here is the bottom line. Towney and his team got 4 bullets in 4 races aboard Jazz, and George Dinwiddie and team went 6-5-4-6 out of 7 aboard Le Papillon . We were tied with the team of White Opal and Gemini but took the trophy because of Towney's 1-1-1-1
