Callisto wins Ladies Day race

Thirteen boats turned out for the Northport Bay Yacht Club’s annual Ladies Day race on Saturday.

Sailing under sunny skies and fair breezes, the early starters — the small boat fleet — were caught early on by the larger boats but as the wind freshened on the second and third legs the smaller boats held their own. Finishing first in both fleet and class was Callisto, skippered by Ellen Merson of Leland.

Second and third in the small boat class were Lil Boom (third overall) and USEA (sixth overall).

Great Expectations, Grin and Suzy were the top three finishers in the large boat class.

This Saturday is the Flag’s Fly’n event. Sailors are encouraged to deck out their boats and by doing so will earn bonus points towards the season’s overall prize, the Applebee Memorial Trophy.
