11. DONNYBROOK (SC 70)- JAMES MULDOON
...Donnybrook, the Santa Cruz 70 owned by AYC member Jim Muldoon, didn't fare so well.
For the second straight Annapolis-to-Newport Donnybrook was first to finish, but corrected to ninth in IMS I class and 13th in fleet.
Donnybrook had lodged a protest seeking a time reduction for its run-in with a Navy missile testing exercise.Muldoon
and crew lost approximately two hours when they were ordered to motor out of a restricted area.Unfortunately the race committee ruled there was no provision for such an incident.Time allowances can only be awarded for yachts that effect a rescue or otherwise provide aid to a troubled vessel.
This year's Annapolis-to-Newport was in effect two races.Race one was an agonizing trip down the Chesapeake Bay that took Donnybrook 28 hours and Trepidation 38.Between Smith Island and the target ships the entire 50-boat fleet had to anchor for several hours to avoid being swept backwards by tide in the totally becalmed conditions.
