Mayor's Cup win with Tony Krauss

rockets Uncle Al to brief Storer lead

(180611) Flash! Well attended Warm Water moves Pughs and Bennetts to the top of Storer standings.
(180607) Victory in the 13-boat Wayfarer fleet of this year's Mayor's Cup Regatta has moved Uncle Al into a narrow lead atop the Storer Trophy standings. Being the winning boat in the regatta's largest fleet - Flying Scots had 12 entries - also made Uncle Al and crew, Tony Krauss, the 2018 winners of the Mayor's Cup, sailed annually out of Greensboro, NC's Lake Townsend YC.

Regatta far away, but late penalty looms
