Pughs Shine at Midwinters
(160209) Oakville's David and Anne Pugh topped a fleet of 21 boats in the 2016 U.S. Nationals, hosted Jan. 29-31 by the Lake Eustis SC as part of our annual Florida Midwinters. Even though the winds failed to co-operate on Saturday and Sunday, Friday's magnificent winds and weather enabled our fine RC to give us five races that day. The Pughs left no doubt as they scored four convincing firsts and one 2nd in the 5-race series. The Detroit team of Doug Scheibner and Andrew Lockhart placed a fine second while Charlotte's Richard Johnson and wife, Michele, completed the top three. More to come soon. Complete results here.
