O’Pen Bic RI Intergalactics Were a Blast!

IMG_1950A forecast of 20+ knots and hazy, hot and humid weather did NOT deter the 60+ junior sailors yesterday at the O’Pen Bic Intergalactic RI UnRegatta. It was a huge success with super swag, amazing prizes (Thanks, Charlie Enright for the signed shirt off your back for first place prize!) and some super FUN and sweet sailing in our secret cove.

With a variety of exciting courses set up by the Mike3 RC, (3 Mikes busted butt to put this thing on. All other Mike’s invited to help next year! And many other volunteers were paramount to the event’s success, like Scoring Goddess, Nina M.) the kids had a blast and were treated to some super fun and challenging sailing in Gull Cove.

Every sailor was paired with another in anticipation of switching off and a building afternoon breeze which lent itself nicely to sailing with a buddy.  Courses were set up for some crazy buoy racing, a capsize race where all sailors went for a swim when the horn sounded, a stand up course where you had to stand for the whole race! and some wacky, narrow navigating around rocks and squirt gunning teammates through a slender cut about as wide as the trailers used to bring the boats to the event.

Ice Cream and pizza was served for all and new friends and awesome memories were made.  The winning team of Olin Guck and Ronan M. were surprised with an epic first place prize of signed Team Alvimedica shirts from our hometown hero Volvo Ocean Race skipper, Charlie Enright. (see last photo in slide show of a very stoked first place winner!)

These fun UNregattas which have become an O’Pen Bic thing, are a great way to run a junior sailing event. The focus was on involving everyone, having fun, staying safe and fast, awesome sailing!

MISSION ACCOMPLISHED! Thanks to all the Mikes, all the volunteers and to the yacht clubs, parents, coaches and sailors who showed up with their FUN factor in place and raring to go. Let’s do it again next year!  (or go to Hyannis, MA on August 11 for the next nearby UnRegatta!)

Fun movie from GoPro footage coming soon! If you have footage to submit for inclusion, please send to kristinb@jamestowndistributors.com
And if your kid is begging: Buy your own O’pen Bic here!
