Cedar Point Yacht Club completed the 2015 OneDesign Regatta this weekend, producing winners in the J/109, J/105, Beneteau First and Soverel 33 classes. CPYC's annual OneDesign event for the first time was presented in two parts: last weekend featured races for boats 26 feet and over, following races for J/70s and other sport boats under 26 feet on May 16-17.
Sailors from throughout the U.S. and overseas competed in the regatta -- more than 40 boats and 300 sailors in the second weekend alone. CPYC's Race Committee got in four races over the second weekend, working around slowly building breezes and a massive thunderstorm and torrential rains that closed in on Sunday. George and Alex Wilbanks, of Westport, finished second in the J/105 class, tying for first on points but was edged on a tiebreak. Alistair Duke, of Wilton, was third in the Beneteau First class, just ahead of Westport's Peter Hurley, who finished fifth.
