Olympians to sail Hopatcong

Olympic gold medalists and other top sailors will be descending on the Lake Hopatcong Yacht Club the last weekend in May for the 51st annual Tomahawk Regatta.

Mark Reynolds (two-time gold medalist and one-time silver medalist), Peter Bromby (multiple Olympican, three-time Bacardi Cup winner), Phil Trinter (2004 Olympian, Star World Champion, and three-time America’s Cup crew), and LHYC member Rick Merriman (United States Youth Singlehanded champion, college all-American, and Etchells world champion) are among the dozens of sailors who will be sailing Stars, a two-person, two-sail keelboat, on the main lake on May 30 and 31.
Last year’s event, the 50th celebration, also drew world-class sailors—as well as heavy winds and an exciting finish. Bromby, who hails from Bermuda, is the reigning champion, along with his crew, East Hanover’s Brian Murphy.
