To Fleet 13 Members,
What a great weekend we had! Starting with the Kris Kringle Regatta on Saturday morning - it looked for a while as if it might be a light wind day, but sure enough, around noon the westerly filled in and then it was game on! Congratulation to Andy La Dow and crew Jake La Dow and Max Hutchinson on MoFo (USA 985) for a flawless regatta – winning with three bullets – done skillfully by owning the pin end at the start of each race, heading left for the channel with an outgoing tide and extending thereafter to win, wire to wire. Top Corinthian honors for the day go to Frederic Lafitte and family on Hustle and Flow (USA 1281) for second place overall, after parachuting in from Seattle for the weekend. Third place went to Ben Mitchell as guest skipper on Elizabeth (USA 1000) with crew members Brad Rodi and Patrick Powell. Fourth place went to skipper JJ Fetter and crew on Sputnik (USA 1044) while fifth place went to skipper Mike Terry and crew on Blue Fin (USA 1263).
