2004 US Men's Sailing Championship

After a disappointing lack of wind, which prevented a practice race on Tuesday, the weather opened up to a brilliantly blue clear sky, with winds from the NNW from 5-8 mph.
The Race Committee of Little Egg Harbor Yacht Club, a two-time winner of the St Petersburg Trophy for excellence in race management, ran three races today. They set a windward leg of about a mile for the twice around windward/leeward course. For the first leg of the first race the ebbing tide favored the left side, but this was reversed to change this situation for the rest of the day. The third race was shortened due to a dying wind.

Two-time winner Zach FANBERG (New Orleans, LA), with crew Dave BOUIN and Kippy CHABMBERLAIN, made an opening bid to equal the three consecutive wins of Buddy MELGES from 1959 to 1961. Bill FASTIGGI (Winooski, VT), with crew Suzy COLBURN and Don BRUSH, and Jim ALLEN (Walled Lake, MI), with crew Tom ALLEN and Jody SWANSON, are close on his heels.
