The H-Class Nationals were hosted in Edgartown on August 3-4 by Edgartown Yacht Club. The weekend was excellent, with Saturday providing plenty of wind and spray and Sunday serving up calm with blue skies and light winds. A fleet of 27 boats met to compete. Some traveling sailors rented local Doughdishes, while others sailed their boats from the Buzzards, Beverly, and Quissett Yacht Clubs on Buzzards Bay.
Congratulations to Jay Fisher, of Buzzards Yacht Club, and his Doughdish Encore for winning this year’s championship. We look forward to next year when the design turns 100 years old and Nationals will be held at the Buzzards Yacht Club.
