The S2S Match Racing Team was hard at work over the weekend September 12-13, taking top honours at the Oakcliff Fall Grade 3 regatta. Skipper Landon Gardner and his crew of Alex Byczko, Brandon Townsend, Alex Heinzeman and Taylor Self travelled down to Long Island Sound to compete in Swedish Match 40s against 5 other teams. Saturday saw plenty of penalty flags amid gusty conditions, and the S2S Match Racing Team ended the day of racing with a solid 7 wins from 9 matches. Only one flight of matches was completed on the Sunday, as the wind became light and shifty. With the second place crew in the overnight standings losing their match, the crew knew a victory in their own final match would secure the overall win. The S2S Match Racing Team led from the start and extended their advantage over the course of the race to finish ahead by several lengths, taking the overall title.
Big thanks to Oakcliff and our fellow competitors for making it a great event!
