2021.01.24  Nostalgia update: the memorable 2006 Midwinters

2021.01.24   2006 Midwinters champions: A shared learning experience turned out perfectly for the all-crews team of Marc Bennett and Michele Parish (above) who won the overall title sailing W3854. The all-helms team of Richard Johnson and Uncle Al sailed W10139 Free Range Chickin to series 4th and Richard was Most Improved.

It was not until the Sunday that the weather permitted racing - three races.

The Heffernans - Linda and Jim - returned to action after 25 years off.

When Saturday winds abated a bit, a few of us ventured out. While on safety duty Dave Moring captured Marc and Al in action that became the cover shot for Uncle Al's KISS Your Dinghy.
