Bennett/Seraphinoff Dominate US Nats at Fenton

2022.09.28 coverage completed  In a tough eight-boat fleet on Lake Fenton September 24-25, Marc Bennett and Julie Seraphinoff (11339 above) of East Lansing, MI took their first ever U.S. Wayfarer Nationals Gold in a five-race series sailed in cool puffy winds of medium strength under cloudy skies. The 2nd-seeded Bennetts also shared Wayfarer Most Improved honours with 7th-seeded Dave McCreedy and Dave Wilpula who also bettered their seed by one position. Results, all photos, Al's reports here.  Rebels report coming soon.
Major Buccaneer, Sunfish events add even more spice to beautiful Clark Lake Regatta

2022.09.30  Lovely weather for our 2022 Clark Lake Fall Regatta Sept. 17-18 near Jackson, MI. The event drew large fleets of Sunfish to their Regionals, and an impressive number of Buccaneers (22)  from as far away as Alaska for the BNAC (Buccaneer North American Championship). Smaller fleets of Rebels and Wayfarers also competed with the eight-boat Wayfarer fleet attracting three of its top ten-ranked North American teams, (Jay Topping photo above: l to r) Marc Bennett with Julie, Peggy Menzies, David & Anne Pugh) Complete results here. Albums of shore, action and awards pics now posted. More photos (by Shannon aboard W3854), report coming soon. Clark Lake Spirit Foundation coverage here.
