Crewless in Catawba

Jack Young captures one of the few seconds that solo Al was able to fly his chute in the series.

Glorious warm and sunny weather blessed the North American Wayfarers' final event of 2019, Charlotte's Old Brown Dog Regatta again hosted by the Catawba YC for us and the MC Scows. When Uncle Al's intended pick-up crew, Lauren, could not make it after all, Al turned his loss into an advantage as the winds remained mostly light and variable. Rediscovering some of his old-time light-air magic, Uncle Al placed in the top three of 11 boats in all six races of the no-drop series to score an impressive series win. Complete Wayfarer & MC results, Phil Leonard point-form report plus all five pics albums here. More soon.

Sister Act the HOT Wayfarer Ticket on Lake Townsend

Michigan's Peggy Menzies and her sister from Minnesota, Kathy Sanville, won HOT 8.

(191104)  Perfect sailing weather blessed this year's HOT 8 Regatta at the Lake Townsend YC. Long distance visitors grabbed two of the top three spots in the 11-boat Wayfarer fleet. US champion, Peggy Menzies, signed up as crew, her sister, Kathy Sanville, who usually campaigns an E-Scow in Minnesota. The sisters needed a tie-breaker to edge out locals, Jim and Linda Heffernan, for the series win. Connecticut's contribution to Wayfarers and wooden boats, Paul Miller and wife, Dawn, scored a very impressive series 3rd in Wind Shadow W971.  Report, results and all five albums posted.
