The 2017 Taylor Trophy, sponsored by the YRALIS and hosted by Larchmont YC, took place on July 8-9. As in past years, the event attracted both seasoned match racers and those who are fairly new to match racing. So it made sense to provide a clinic on Saturday, the day before the regatta. Enter Dave Perry, five-time Match Racing and two-time Ideal 18 National Champion. He is considered one of the top, if not the top, rules expert in the world and is the current Chair, US Sailing Match Racing Committee. The clinic’s goal was to raise each participant’s skill and knowledge level in match racing tactics and strategies, as well as boat speed and handling in the Ideal 18’s and have fun while doing it. These goals were not only achieved but exceeded. After morning on-land clinic, teams were assigned boats and headed out to the Sound. By the end of the afternoon, Perry had filmed at least 30 (not a typo) training videos and used them to debrief. He later sent them to all clinic participants. How good is that? MORE

The YRA Taylor Trophy 2016 - Long Island Sound's Match Racing Championship
Congratulations to Derek Webster and Tory Lynch, Larchmont Yacht Club, who won the 2016 Taylor Trophy Match Racing Championship. By the end of the day, they were tied with Zach Runci, with crew Ali Blumenthal and Howie Meyers, SUNY Maritime. Each team had a score of 6 wins, 1 loss. Because Webster beat Runci in their match, the Taylor Trophy was awarded to the team of Webster-Lynch, relegating Runci to the runner-up position.
The next two places were also a tie between Will Hutchings and Albert Nichols, Larchmont YC, and Ben Gent and Christopher Bigos, New York YC, who was last year’s winner. For complete press release, click HERE
