Heffernans Capture HOT 9 Wayfarer Win

2020.11.06  A well-matched group of three Wayfarers (Eric Rasmussen photo above) joined 7 Flying Scots, 6 420's and a lone Laser Oct. 24-25 for Lake Townsend's annual HOT Regatta. Light flukey airs were best handled by the veteran team of Jim Heffernan and wife, Linda, who scored three close wins before inclement weather caused the rest of the weekend's racing to be abandoned. More here.
