This past weekend gave Z Sails another first in fleet finish. Joe Healy Sr. drove the family Beneteau 375 Belle Filles to clean up Course One in perfect conditions in the Stamford Denmark Friendship Race. In addition, Don Rotzein's C & C 36 Tecumseh showed a clean pair of heels to Class 5 - non spinnaker.
Photoboat has an excellent record of Belle Filles' winning form: http://www.photoboatgallery.net/p444805397

|Monster! Gemini 1st In Fleet In Vineyard Race - Second Year In A Row!!!|
Posted: Sunday, September 3rd, 2017 1:50 pm
James Cofman and crew and their Hanse 375 Gemini did it again! Last night they brought her home from the Vineyard first in a fleet of 41 boats. This follows on last years Vineyard Race result when they were 1st in another fleet of 41 boats
This team has created a Z Sails driven monster. Gemini's last outing was the Around Long Island Regatta in which they were first is fleet (43 boats). Before that they won their division in the Block Island (8 boats) and were 2nd in fleet (34 boats).
In the 2016 in addition to sweeping the Vineyard Race they also won thier division in the Block Island Race. Going back to 2015 they finished up that season by being first in fleet in the Gearbuster.
Alltogether, an amazing string of performances. Well done Gemini!
|Gemini First In Fleet In The ALIR!|

James Coffman and crew took their Hanse 375 Gemini to first in fleet in the Around Long Island Regatta.
In a brilliant move to make the start visible to more spectators, the Sea Cliff Yacht Club has for the first time in the 41 year history of this celebrated race moved to New York Harbor. After a hectic beat dodging harbor traffic in a brisk breeze the racers were faced with a slow slog to Montauk and then a fast reach home under threat of an nor'easterly gale that didn't quite materialize but did give the Geminis a healty push along their way.
Needless to say, Gemini has an all Z inventory. Well done Gemini!!
