Shut Up & Drive Time at Great Pumpkin Regatta

Richmond Yacht Club’s 32nd Great Pumpkin Regatta had a mix of fall weather with mostly grey skies and generally light airs, but some occasions with more breeze. On Saturday, the fleet enjoyed three well-run races in classic "around the cans" scenarios in the Berkeley Circle. In the J/24 fleet, it was Val Lulevich and her crew on SHUT UP & DRIVE who won with a 3-1-1 tally for 5 points. The teams behind her ended up tied for the silver at 8 points apiece. Darren Cumming’s DOWNTOWN UPROAR posted a 1-4-3, good enough on count-back to overcome Jasper Van Vliet’s EVIL OCTOPUS with a 2-2-4 scoreline. Thanks for contribution from Erik Simonson.
