April Fools Challange
The April Fool’s Challenge proved to be the race this yer with unexpected Fool's Challanges. Nightwind with the charter crew and skipper Jay Legget finished the course first, followed by Oxbow, skippered by Andrew Clark and then Sea Lady, skippered by Kevin DeNicola.
After all, this was the April Fool’s Challenge, and things are not what they seem, and the real ranking was hidden inside the trophy … Jay, as the skipper for the fastest team was allowed to choose his team’s trophy first, Unfortunately, Andrew was not present during the ceremony, so he was left with the leftover choice.
GOOD FUN FOR ALL THE SHIPS OF FOOLS
Crazy Irishman's Chase
Finishing in the Jamesons, 1st place Astarte with Mark Langley at the helm, 2nd place Night Wind with Jay Leggett and crew and 3rd plce OxBow, Andrew Clark and his merry crew of 1. Great race by all.
Women Go Sailing
April 6th was the Annual Mermaid Regatta sponsored by HYC Women's Sailing Association
TASS entered 3 race teams with all women crews. Mischief & Night Wind entered the Club Boat Handicap and Astatre entered PHRF non-spin class. The Regatta had 13 all female crew board in total participate from as far away as Louisiana and Galveston
TASS had a brilliant showing with Astarte taking 3rd place and Mischief for the 2nd year in a row taking 1st place in each boats respective class. Night Wind's new crew did well and we are positive they will return next year.
Thank you Babs Bukowski for your dedication to women in sailing and all the work you did to make this another year of Mermaid Racing success.

Icicle Race Series
January and February gave us some great racing with GBCA. Along side the TASS charter boat, Astarte, Escape Hatch and Ox-Bow participated and TASS members crewed on boats Stella of Course, Hobgoblin and Lazz. The field was competitive with upward 60 boats participating some weeks.
In the end there was a WINNER - Astarte took the honors overall with their outstanding skipper Cheryl and her crew. Congratulation to Astarte and all the TASS participants for braving the chill.
