Team Black Skimmer leads W domination of HOT VII

(181107) Oriental, NC Wayfarers, Richard Johnson and wife, Michele (above right) became the first team to win the HOT Regatta overall title for two consecutive years in HOT VII. This year's HOT was again a Lake Townsend YC-hosted pre-Hallowe'en fund-raiser for earlier.org, a charity raising money to fund research into earlier detection of breast cancer. With ten boats, Wayfarers were again the largest fleet and took the top four places overall on corrected time. Details here.  
Rookie crew shines as SHADES a.k.a. Glory Days
takes Old Brown Dog Regatta and Storer Trophy

(181119) Patchy breezes, an antsy skipper and a lack of spinnaker experience were surmountable problems for Keith Gunder (W439), as he and Uncle Al (above) took top honours in the 2018 Olde Brown Dog Regatta hosted by Charlotte's Catawba YC Nov. 3-4. All results and photos now posted.
Keith and Al's victory in the 11-boat Wayfarer fleet was worth eleven Storer Trophy points, just enough to move Al and a complement of eight different crews past Sue Pilling and Steph Romaniuk to the 2018 Storer Trophy win. Thanks and congratulations from Uncle Al to
Ali Kishbaugh, Calvin Groen, David Stifler, Frank Goulay, Hans Gottschling, Keith Gunder, Shannon Donkin and Tony Krauss. Details here.
