Bay Sailors Reunite for the 18th Screwpile Lighthouse Challenge

4 Screwpile Lighthouse Challenge 2010

T

he third week of every July, racing sailors descend upon Solomons from rivers near and far—Middle, Corsica, Magothy, Severn, West, Tred Avon, Rappahanock, and Piankatank—and from multiple tributaries from Round to Broad Bays. Except for our hosts at the Southern Maryland SA (SMSA), most of the competitors have traveled great distances, taken vacation time from work, and coordinated hotel rooms, meals, and even carpools for multiple crew members. It’s not an easy task; it’s work to get here, especially for the many competitors who race overnight in Eastport YC’s popular distance race, the Solomons Island Invitational. After a full day of recovery and a post-race party, more than 110 boats will be on hand for the 18th running of the Screwpile Lighthouse Challenge July 18 to 20. Welcome back! It’s a Bay racers’ reunion on the race course and on the dance floor. Race chair L.G. Raley rallies his troops to offer racer-friendly and highly professional race committee work on-the-water and an excellent, lighthearted social scene on shore. It’s a three-day party mixed with serious, competitive sailing, and the racers, race committee members, and

sponsors know it and keep coming back year after year. The overall winner from 2009, Bert Carp’s Annapolis-based Donovan 27 Remedy crew is back in action defending its title. Pete Hunter’s Thompson 30 Wairere team will also be vying for another year at the top of PHRF A1 in 2010. Kevin McNeil’s Annapolisbased Farr 40 Nightshift crew and Sledd Shelhorse’s Norfolk-based Farr 36 Meridian II team will be in close competition as they were in 2009 in PHRF A0. All three top 2009 finishers from the Beneteau 36.7 class—Peter Firey’s Pegasus (Pirates Cove RC), Keith Mayes’s Jubilee (Herrington Harbour), and Jim Kershaw’s Team Aegis—will be back in contention for a Screwpile win as well as the class’s Mid-Atlantic Championship title for the third year in a row. Beneteau 36.7 sailors are gearing up for the North American Championships in Annapolis in the fall. Fleet captain Mayes says, “I have always loved making the annual pilgrimage to Solomons for the Screwpile and am delighted that the fleet has again decided to support the regatta. SMSA does a great job on and off the water, and there is no better place to spend

Sailing Instructions and Information


three days of racing than Solomons.” Bruce Artman’s T-Bone (Herrington Harbour) and Maury Niebur’s Bump in the Night (West River SC) crews will work to improve upon their 2009 second and third place finishes in the J/35 class. The purple boat of no name, John White and Tom Ballard’s Beneteau 33 which topped PHRF A2 is back on the scene, as is their tradition. More regatta regulars, Brian Jones and his Annapolis-based BC 27 crew on Problem Child, are working to sail their way to the top of the Sport Boat class again. Leo Wardrup (Broad Bay SA) and his Irwin 38-1 Black Widow team are back in action to defend the 2009 win in the non-spinnaker class. Most of the event’s 100 volunteers are not only seasoned race committee members but Screwpile veterans. Annapolis-based Principal Race Officer (PRO) Taran Teague will run the North Course this year, and Hampton PROs John and Lin McCarthy the West. PRO Don Behrens of Solomons will lead the South Course. Race committee volunteer Bobby Frey says, “I go every year because you can’t find a better venue, centrally positioned, to bring together racers from the entire Chesapeake Bay.

The race organization is top notch, and the committees strive to bring the best experience possibly to the competitors. It is one of my very favorite events of the year. I would not miss it!” In her tenth year as PRO, Teague says, “The Screwpile Regatta offers three days of racing run by racers. Add SMSA hospitality, plus the cost effectiveness of being close to home, and that makes Screwpile a spectacular event. Regatta chair LG Raley brings in the best race officers and judges from the Chesapeake.” Organizers continue to “raise the bar” by bringing in more U.S. Sailing Certified race committee members, with more than a dozen certified PROs and four certified judges, two of them senior judges. “When you’re certified, everyone speaks the same language,” says Teague. “So, it makes it easier for us to come together from so many different places and get the job done well.”

The overall winner will be that boat which wins the class with the closest, most competitive racing of the event. This is determined by adding the corrected time differential (elapsed time for one-design classes) between first and fifth place and dividing that total by the total miles raced for each class. The class winner competing in the class with the lowest average time differential between first and fifth (sec/mile) is the “Overall Winner”. 21.4 Special Awards for outstanding performance as determined by the Screwpile 2010 Committee may be presented during the awards ceremonies.

22. INSPECTIONS The Race Committee reserves the right to inspect a boat without prior notification at any time to assure compliance with class rules and safety requirements.

25. MOVABLE BALLAST As per PHRF Fleet Policies: “Canting keels and center boards moved by the use of stored energy are allowed if the boat retains self righting ability with the keel or centerboard in any allowed position.

Three Strange Days in 1995

o read the title of the Screwpile Regatta coverage in SpinSheet’s premier edition in September 1995. The article, written by SpinSheet’s founding editor, Dave Gendell, was subtitled “Turnout and Thermometers Reach Century Mark at Screwpile Regatta.” The entire magazine—yellowed around the edges—is a wonderful trove of sailing history, but the Screwpile coverage in particular would bring smiles to the faces of longtime Bay sailors.

16 Screwpile Lighthouse Challenge 2010

Snippets of the first paragraph: “The third edition of the Screwpile Lighthouse Challenge... has benefited enormously from the demise of Yachting Race Week at Solomons which consistently drew top Chesapeake talent. One hundred and three boats participated in the event which featured excellent seabreezes on Sunday and Monday and a frustrating slick calm Tuesday… The salt-tinged sea breeze filled from the south east about 10:30 a.m. While the eight to 12 knots provided

a fine platform for racing, it gave little relief to the sun-baked sailors pushing to conquer the intense heat and humidity which held the mid-Atlantic in an unforgiving grip throughout the long weekend.” (Déjà vu, anyone?)

Some other interesting aspects of the first SpinSheet: • Mount Gay Rum sponsored the Racing Beat section. Pettit is our current sponsor. • Sobstad Sails (turned

Quantum) was the back cover advertiser, as is still the case. • The SpinSheet Calendar was one page long. These days it is five or more pages long and is sponsored by the Boatyard Bar & Grill. • There were race results for seven regattas in the first issue. These days, SpinSheet prints race results for big regattas, but we know readers can find what they need online well in advance of our print date.

• Ten writers contributed to the September 1995 issue. Nineteen writers (and 32 cruising club members) contributed to the July 2010 issue. • We are thrilled to sponsor the Screwpile Lighthouse Challenge and to bring you the Screwpile Daily News. We invite all competitors, spouses, and friends to join us on Sunday night near the party tent for cake and Mount Gay Rum drinks to celebrate SpinSheet’s 15-year anniversary!
