Northern News Report:
Where are all those Ugly Hawiian Shirts coming from? In a fleet of 24 racers and cruisers that invaded Sucia last weekend Steve Dubnoff carried away a chocolatey victory, even over a former champion, and a stuffed entrant with a wardobe malfunction. The ever growing jigsaw puzzle of rafted boats at the dock ranged from 18' to at least 100'. (That's what my crew thought!) Coffee was shared in the morning after a terrific night of potluck BBQ, cribbage, wifi TV, marshmallows, and some wine. At the start of Saturdays race the competitiors decided to motor North to the windline and Rough n Ready skippered by California Chris and Sheila fired off the starting guns somewhere off Jack Island. According to inside sources in the revised results The Commodore and the missus carried the day with a new paint job and old sails. The Wild Rumpus with the most Pop Tarts on board ever carried at sea was second. Passepartout slipped in for third, The Walt and Jerry show Syndicat 4th and the Family Affair Emoyine 5th. Three cheers for cruise chair Capt. Chowanec!
Southern News Report:
Kevin Welch and Ian Sloan took their training dinghy for ICON, the Melges 24 Mikey, to the CYC Puget Sound Spring Regatta (PSSR) and after the smoke cleared; 12 races over two days in a star studded fleet of 15 boats they came back with the first place pickle dish. To come out of the rainy season and start out with a win is commendable. The entire crew has been training and cross training and have their sights set on the Worlds next year in San Frncisco.
Wednesday night at 6pm at AYC there is a get together for everybody interested in the Wednesday night racing program. We need Race Commitee volunteers, help in the kitchen, bartenders and of course skippers and crew. We will have sign up sheets for skippers looking for crew and vice versa, or bring your own. Bring a neighbor or a friend or friend that is a neighbor! Come on down and have a glass of cheer and find out what it is all about!
