Over the May 29-31 weekend, 17 crews of sailors with disabilities sailed specially adapted Ideal 18s in the seventh annual Robie Pierce One-Design Regatta. Hosted jointly by the American and Larchmont Yacht Clubs, the Robie continues to be the only major adaptive regatta on western Long Island Sound. This year, Duane Farrar (Watertown, MA) and Amy Bower (Falmouth, MA), blind sailors sailing with Sol Marini as their sighted guide, bested the fleet with a final points total of 18 points after ten races.
