(Photo credit Stuart Streuli) Three classes, the J/70, Melges 24 and Etchells, with 59 boats, raced over two days of the New York Yacht Club One Design Regatta on June 30 and July 1.

The wind proved to be elusive on Saturday, testing the patience of sailors and providing some challenging moments for the race committee. They managed to get in four races, with one on Saturday and three on Sunday.

In the largest fleet, the J/70 class with 37 boats racing, a local team skippered by Tim Healy took home second place. Healy was using the opportunity to size up the competition for the upcoming J/70 World Championships, which will be held in Marblehead, Massachusetts in September.
