Lake Townsend sailors leading
2017 Storer Trophy race at mid-season

                           Jim and AnnMarie at the Wayfarer Easterns

At the Wayfarer season's midpoint, Lake Townsend clubmates are leading the hunt for the 2017 Storer Trophy. Our brand-new scoring system awards one participation point plus one point for each boat beaten in the overall results of an event, best six event scores to count. Jim and Linda Heffernan have grabbed 48 points from their five events while AnnMarie Covington has 45 points from the same five events. Two points further back and tied for series 3rd are Oakville's David and Anne Pugh and East Lansing's Marc Bennett who have each sailed four events so far. Here are the top ten helms as of 2 July 2017:

1. Jim Heffernan                 48                6. Richard Johnson                    32

2. AnnMarie Covington    45                7= Phil Leonard                           24
3= David Pugh                    43                7= Al Schonborn                         24
3= Marc Bennett                43                9. Dave Moring                           20
5. Uwe Heine                      33              10. Doug Scheibner & Andrew    19
