Angle Moon photos Rehoboth Bay's howling southeast winds have Hobie skippers flipping, smiling at North Americans When Rehoboth Bay Sailing Association was wooing organizers for the 1998 Hobie 16 North American Continental Championships for Dewey Beach, one of the strong suits was the strong fall winds that bl0w from the south in late September and early October. The organizers took the bait and haven't been disappointed. "Yesterday the wind was howling," said race co-chairman Bruce Andrews Thursday morning. "Twenty-three of the 63 Hobies that start- ed Wednesday afteruoon's race couldn't finish. Thirty of them went over. It was blowing about 30 out of the south and southeast. There are a lot of happy souls here," said Andrews. The week of racing started on Sunday, Sept. 27, with a series of races designed to choose the U.S. Hobie 16 racer who will rep- resent the U.S. in the 1999 Pan American games to be held in Canada. Wally Myers of Mamora, N.J., and Mark Santorelli, his crew, dominated the four- race series with three firsts and a fifth o win the qualifying honors. They are shown in the lower right photo, sail No. 102733, leading another race. Myers is a five-time Hobie national champion, having won the Hobie 16s three times and the 17s twice. Andrews said Myers was continuing to sail strong all week and appeared to be headed toward his sixth national championship. By the time trophie s are awarded Friday night at Ruddertowne's Crabbers Cove, the Hobie skippers will have sailed 18 races to determine who are the best Hobie 16 crews of North America for 1998. The photo above shows part of the fleet under a cold front moving through and providing ideal sailing conditions. At lower left, Chris Begrow takes time out between races.
