KISS Your Dinghy Rules update
As a service to purchasers of his book (and to others), Uncle Al has updated KISS Your Dinghy page 93, his one-page summary of the RRS (Racing Rules of Sailing) to reflect the new (2017-2020) version of the RRS. Help yourselves.

Detroit Duo Dominates


(180310)  Detroit's Doug Scheibner (r) and Andrew Lockhart (l) receive the Designer's Trophy (US Nationals champions) from Eustis mayor, Robert Morin. In pretty much perfect sailing conditions, Doug and Andrew outshone a hot 23-boat fleet in the US Nats which were piggy-backed onto our annual Lake Eustis Midwinters held Feb 2-4. Complete coverage here.
