28 SEP 2008 HYC Singlehand Race ?/? -- Once again, results probably won't be posted. I did poorly so no loss.

18 JUL 2009 BBSA Little Bay Challenge 3/9 -- Excellent! Got a trophy.
22 AUG 2009 SYC Singlehand Regatta -- 2/3 Steady breeze, unfamiliar course provided a fun race.

7 NOV 2009 BBSA Hot Buttered Rum Race 1/6 -- The best way to end the season, with a first!
15 MAY 2010 BBSA Cape Henry Cup 2/5 -- Great race, good breeze all around the track. We made the winner nervous for awhile.

14 AUG 2010 BBSA Cape Charles Cup I 6/7 21/34 Great day, all upwind, made a few bad decisions.
15 AUG 2010 BBSA Cape Charles Cup II 5/7 27/33 Another great day, but mostly upwind. I'm getting tired of pushing a Lapworth design upwind all the time! Can I please have a race that's downwind for a change!
26 SEP 2010 HYC Singlehand Race ?/? -- Was overpowered the whole race. So I know I didn't do well. No posted results anyway.

16 JUL 2011 BBSA/PBC Little Bay Challenge 1/10 -- Yeessssss! Team Melantho wins!
8 AUG 2011 CCV Founders Race 5/5 -- This race is a perfect example why I don't like to race against dinghies around a W/L course. Nice day for a sail, though.
10 SEP 2011 HYC Annual Middle Ground Light Race 5/9 -- Light wind. We were the highest place non-skiff, so I'm happy with that.
15 OCT 2011 BBSA Memorial Race 3/5 3/15 Strong wind, but we got 'er home. Won a trophy. Great way to wrap up the season.
10 JUN 2012 HYC Doublehanded Race 4/10 -- Very light wind. Succeeded in beating all the skiffs, so that was satisfying.
13 OCT 2012 BBSA Willoughby Memorial Regatta 2/5 2/16 Nice breeze. Started near the back of a pursuit race, so had lots of boats to pass. Was actually in the lead for 1 leg. Happy with the result.
20 OCT 2012 OPCYC Round The Lights Race 3/8 11/41 Nice breeze at the start, but then became weak and variable. Lots of strategy and luck, some good, some bad. Avoided a pile-up near the finish. After 7.5 hrs of racing, happy to get a trophy.
3 NOV 2012 BBSA Hot Buttered Rum Race 2/5 -- Breezy and cold. Finished the year with a good result.
