Uncle Al and Shannon Shank survive
broken rudder and take NA title
at warm but windy Clark Lake
(140922) Warm, breezy conditions dominated our North American Wayfarer championships hosted by the wonderful Clark Lake YC near Jackson, MI Sept. 20-21. Despite breaking the W3854 rudder while leading race one, Al Schonborn and Shannon Shank, were able to capture the NA's which were scored with a drop race. The Regatta title went to Toronto's Mike Codd who was sailing with Kirk Iredale and scored a classy 2-2-2-2 in the 4-race series, this despie capsizing in the opener. Results posted; report coming soon.
Pughs tune up for Clark Lake NAs(140909) A Detroit team stepped into a Wayfarer borrowed from Nick Seraphinoff (W10974) and beat a hot fleet of Wayfarer regulars in the 2014 U.S. Nationals hosted by the wonderful Tawas Bay YC in perfect weather Sept. 6-7. Doug Scheibner and Andrew Lockhart who more usually sail Etchells out of Detroit's Bayview YC began their series with a spectacular 1-2-2 in very challenging shifts and then hung on to edge out Canadian champions, Sue Pilling and Steph Romaniuk, in a 6-race series. Doug and Andrew were the first American team to take top spot in a U.S. Wayfarer Nationals since Joe and Janis Schnur won in 1986 at Higgins Lake, MI.

with impressive Mississauga win!!
(140915) David and Anne Pugh (W10963) fought off fine challenges from Dave Hansman with Dave Richardson and Mike Duncan with wife, Marg (W10962) in the annual Wayfarer/CL16 Regatta hosted Sept. 13-14 by the Mississauga. Despite unseasonably cool weather and a very gray, wet Saturday (above), a healthy 13-boat fleet competed, including five CLs. The result was promising for the Pughs' NA title defense this coming weekend at Clark Lake, Michigan after their disappointing finish the previous weekend in the US Nationals at Tawas. Complete results here. Report and pics to follow.
Excitement, great times as Detroit team
scores first US win in US Nats since 1986
