2021 Dec, Perry Cup 📸

The Monterey Peninsula Yacht Club’s 4 month long Perry Cup series for Mercurys got off to a slow start with the broken boat hoist preventing any launching of boats in November. 

The series picked up steam in December with Dick Clark and his race committee staff getting off 5 races in very light winds. The first race of the day was postponed for an hour then started in very light drifter conditions. For the next 4 races the course was shortened but there was enough wind for a “double sausage” race course. Hopefully, the series will see more wind and good weather for the January 8th races and the February 5th races. A total of 15, or more, races is what will make for a really competitive series. 

The winner for the day was Randy Smith of SFYC with his crew, John Veriola. Second for the day was Dante Fiala a high school sailor from Carmel High and his crew Lili Robnet. Third went to Austin Book and Ashley Hobson which was exceptional sailing because they haven’t sailed their Mercury this year due to their racing to Hawaii and transiting the Rogers 46, Lucky Dock, back to San Francisco this summer
