Thanks to Terry Cook for lovely photos from the 2022 Cedar Key International Rally, March 12-17.

(2022.03.16) Congratulations to our 2022 World champions, Mike McNamara and Simon Townsend, who held onto the title they first won in 1992 and most recently in 2019, in an epic battle with local heroes, Dave Moring and daughter, Ava, who fell just a few points short of pulling off the greatest Wayfarer upset ever. Dave and Ava of the host Lake Eustis SC had a spectacular run of four straight wins, moving to within two points of Team McNamara in the 42-boat fleet before running out of gas in the 11th and final race.   more here

KISS Your Dinghy 2nd edition clear-out of remaining 6 copies @ $25 CAD while they last - shipping, taxes extra - 5th edition soon

(2022.02.14)    KISS Your Dinghy - the KISS principle at its finest. Uncle Al's beautifully illustrated companion to The Wayfarer Book "keeps it simple" yet complete with the fruits of Al's 60+ years of all kinds of Wayfarer sailing. Spiral bound for easier reference.

From racing to reefing, The Wayfarer Book covers it all. A technical masterpiece fresh off the presses now in its 6th edition. Best value option is now ordering straight from the UKWA Store. Contact our Wayfarer Book Man, Bob Brown for  further info.
