Lady Helms Step Up to Place 1-2 in Tough Fleet at Windy Kerr Lake
2022.06.27   All seven albums of photos by Andrew Fine and Courtney Caswell just posted here. For the first time ever, lady helms have placed 1-2 in a major Wayfarer event. Congratulations to AnnMarie Covington who won the 2022 Easterns with Gareth Ferguson as crew at the Governor's Cup on Kerr Lake June 18-19. Shockingly, 10th-seeded Ali Kishbaugh was our Most Improved helm by placing 2nd overall with crew, Neil Smith. Results here.
Three Wayfarers Impress at Rock Hall's Chester River Race

(2022.06.15)..Three Wayfarers (l to r above: Peggy Menzies with sister, Cathy Sanville; Paul Miller with wife, Dawn, and Uncle Al with Stacy Spaulding) finished an impressive 2-3-4 on corrected time in a 31-boat mixed fleet in the annual Down-the-Chester-River Race on Friday, June 10th which was won by an A Cat. The Millers led the Wayfarer contingent to the finish at the Rock Hall YC dock after the sisters had snatched, as they say, defeat from the jaws of victory by needlessly rounding a huge fish weir near the finish Complete results here. No such mistakes by Peggy and Cathy in the subsequent regatta where the won all fine races. Two albums now posted with awards pics courtesy Todd Steffes. More info coming soon.
