Re: [stonehorse46] Stone Horse Trophy [In reply to] Log-In to Post/Reply

Great news! Joe Keough will be joining us on Sunday, August 15th. Joe is one of a few individuals who helped shape the character and ethos of the Stone Horse community. Look forward to reminiscing with Joe at the barbecue, but really look forward to getting him on the water, whether aboard a Stone Horse or a support boat.

Following the Race, those with dinghies will be able to haul out on a private beach on the West side of the harbor, a short walk from 3 Salt Creek Road. Those on Stone Horses with a transient mooring through the New Bedford Yacht Club can take the NBYC launch to the Club, and ground transportation will be provided to/from 3 Salt Creek Road.

08-15-2010 Padanaram, MA

Sunny skies and a brisk 12-14 knot Southeast wind made for spectacular sailing at the 2010 Stone Horse Builder's Cup .

The Race Committee did a fine job, setting the line, communicating with competitors and choosing the course. The four leg course was a three mile triangle with the first leg repeated for a windward finish.

WINDFALL, skippered by Tom Kenney of South Dartmouth, was first over the line followed by YOUNG AMERICA, BUTTERFLY, BLUE JAY and FOOT LOOSE . WINDFALL tacked away from the fleet after being quickly overtaken by Bob Sachetti's YOUNG AMERICA, the 2009 Builder's Cup winner, and BUTTERFLY sailed by Ship Orr and Vern Tisdale of Mattapoisett.

On the first windward leg, YOUNG AMERICA built a substantial lead, and Bill Hulsman, on FOOT LOOSE, recovered from a poor start and moved into 2nd place. Bill Hulsman, somewhat of a legend in the Stone Horse community, has sailed FOOT LOOSE out of Falmouth for 27 years and has won several Builder's Cups.

Vern Tisdale sailed a solid race, steadily increasing BUTTERFLY's lead over WINDFALL and BLUE JAY but unable to gain on FOOT LOOSE and YOUNG AMERICA.

YOUNG AMERICA maintained considerable separation for the first three legs with FOOT LOOSE slowly closing the gap. As the final leg began, YOUNG AMERICA was still in command but FOOT LOOSE was close enough to make it a Horse race. Windward sailing is Bill Hulsman's fortι and, after a series of long tacks, FOOT LOOSE was able to slip by YOUNG AMERICA to win by seconds. Bill attributes his success to knowing his boat, patience and a willingness to sacrifice direction for boat speed when going to windward.

Race results are as follows:

Pos Boat Port Skipper & Crew

1st FOOT LOOSE Boston Bill Hulsman, Adam Clay, Ted Barker

2nd YOUNG AMERICA Aucoot Cove Bob Sachetti, Bill McBrine, John Sachetti

3rd BUTTERFLY Mattapoisett Vern Tisdale, Ship Orr

4th WINDFALL Padanaram Tom Kenney, Ellie Whelan, Bob Jackson

5th BLUE JAY Westport Phil McGlave, Eileen Bernsein, Paval McGlave

Ed Pavao and Joe Keough, of Edey & Duff fame, were both in attendance, and Ed, who served on the Race Committee, distributed some very traditional, hand crafted awards.

Five Stone Horses competed, manned by 14 hardy men and women. Thirty-five participants and guests attended the post race, rendezvous festivities, including 11 Stone Horse owners. Three other Stone Horse owners, Eileen Berstein of New York City, Adam Clay of Attleborough, MA and Ted Barker of Grand Isle, VT, crewed on competing Stone Horses. Sam Chase of Barrington, RI and Little Compton, RI assisted on the Race Committee boat. Sam's Stone Horse, Marce, was originally owned by Ted Barker and was named for Ted's wife, Marce. Tom Browne missed the race but made it to the barbecue.

The 2010 Stone Horse Rendezvous and Builder's Cup was hosted by Tom and Ann Kenney of the New Bedford Yacht Club. Both Bob Sachetti on YOUNG AMERICA and Bill Hulsman on FOOT LOOSE singlehanded from Aucoot Cove and Falmouth, respectively. Phil McGlave and his son, Pavel, sailed BLUE JAY over from Westport. They all joined Ted and Marce Barker and Tom & Ann Kenney for dinner at the NBYC on Saturday night. Vern Tisdale and Ship Orr sailed BUTTERFLY from Mattapoisett Harbor on the day of the race.

A sincere thanks to the the staff and members of the New Bedford Yacht Club for their help, and a special thanks to Jon Bier and Walt Suchon, who served on the Race Committee with Ed Pavao, and to Jon for volunteering his boat, SPRINGER, as the Committee boat.

Photos of the Race and the festivities are courtesy of Walt Suchon, Tom Kenney and Eileen Bernstein.

The Points East article will appear in the October Edition, I'll send the link when I get it.

The Melrose Free Press, a cnc publication, did a long piece on Bob Sachetti and the Builder's Cup, "Melrose-Skipper-Bob-Sachetti-sets-sail-on-Young-America." Captions under the photos are inaccurate, trying to get 'em fixed.

Scuttlebutt selected a Builder's Cup photo to include in their Photo's of the Week section. People do like that photo of BUTTERFLY and WINDFALL.

Re: [stonehorse46] 2010 Stone Horse Rendezvous & Builder's Cup [In reply to] Log-In to Post/Reply

The Sun Chronicle, of Attleboro, MA, did a feature story about Adam Clay crewing aboard FOOT LOOSE in the 2010 Stone Horse Builder's Cup. "Certainly, the family got a big kick out of it", said Adam, continuing, "Worth noting is that the print version of the article was a front-page story in the sports section, with a great color photo of Young America, foreground, chasing Windfall; second page of the article shows a full photo of Blue Jay in a black and white."

The article was in the Sunday, October 24, 2010 print edition and is available on-line at <http://www.thesunchronicle.com/...4/sports/8142979.txt>

Here is the included photo of Blue Jay, by Barbara Veneri. In view are, l to r, Paval McGlave and Eileen Bernstein. FOOT LOOSE can be seen in the distance, over BLUE JAY's bowsprit between the jib and stays'l.


Bill McBrine also reports that Good Old Boat has coverage and "action photos" in their most recent print edition.
