A Wayfarer Legend Remembers

(181209) Ken Jensen (W1348) recently turned 91 and celebrated by doing something he does dozens of times each year: going fishing off Copenhagen's Kastrup airport (above) in Maitken, W1348. Ken, a founding member of the Scandinavian Wayfarer Association in 1968 has entertained and educated his fellow sailors for decades. Recently, Ken jumped into an email exchange between Uncle Al and new Wayfarer, Tom Wilber in NY state, with valuable contributions that even included photos. It occurred to me that we should keep such examples of Ken's wisdom, and I am starting today, series called Ken Remembers. I hope you all will enjoy Ken's material as much as I do.

takes Old Brown Dog Regatta and Storer Trophy

(181123) Patchy breezes, an antsy skipper and a lack of spinnaker experience were surmountable problems for Keith Gunder (W439), as he and Uncle Al (above) took top honours in the 2018 Olde Brown Dog Regatta hosted by Charlotte's Catawba YC Nov. 3-4. All results, photos and completed W report now posted.
Keith and Al's victory in the 11-boat Wayfarer fleet was worth eleven Storer Trophy points, just enough to move Al and a complement of eight different crews past Sue Pilling and Steph Romaniuk to the 2018 Storer Trophy win. Thanks and congratulations from Uncle Al to
Ali Kishbaugh, Calvin Groen, David Stifler, Frank Goulay, Hans Gottschling, Keith Gunder, Shannon Donkin and Tony Krauss. Details here.
