Pair from Crescent Yacht Club wins at Jr. Olympics


ROCHESTER — The Crescent Yacht Club of Chaumont earned a gold and a bronze medal in the 420 non-spinnaker Junior division at the Rochester Yacht Club Junior Olympics that were held last Saturday and Sunday.

The team of skipper Tanner Chapko and crew member Tally Petras earned the gold after finishing first in four races and second in the other three of seven day one races. Chapko and Petras survived their boat capsizing and equipment issues on day two to scratch out a one-point win over a boat from the Rochester Yacht Club.

Both Chapko and Petras as summer residents of Chaumont.

The team of skipper Hannah Sellers and crew member Michael Barber, a student at Lyme Central, earned the bronze after being in sixth spot on the first day.
