Congratulations to Chris and Kyle Roethle (father, son extraordinare) and their crew on the Islander 30', EMOYENI, for a season well sailed!  They received AYC's coveted Boat of the Year Award at last night's Racer's Award party.
For those interested, the BOTY award is calculated on a formula that includes 75% participation in selected series of club races, winning or placing, number of competitors in each race, etc, and this year's results were ever so close....
EMOYENI 1st with 65.77181 points,
KYMODOCE (Kyle Saum) 65.67164,
PANGAEA .... 65.47619,
SYNDICAT .... 60.89744,
HANDY MAN ... 53.07692 and
LITTLE ANNIE ... 49.66887 to round out the top 6.    How's that for close racing!!
It was a grand evening, in spite of a 'unroasted pig' and other missteps, but once again, big sincere, kudos to Andy and Steph Schwenk for another marvelous racing season!!!   We all THANK YOU!!
