Superbowl Eclipsed by Seattle Slew

For San Diego Etchells Fleet 13, the upset came from Seattle, not New York, and was in the form of a Blonde Antelope, not a New York Giant.  In the second ODW for Etchells Fleet 13, Keith Whittemore (Blonde Antelope, #1152) (23 points) bested Bruce Nelson (Rhino #986) despite Nelson’s impressive record of three firsts (28 pts).  Andrew Whittome fell off his red hot pace, finishing third for the weekend, (41 points).  Fred Laffitte, also from the Pacific Northwest, finished fourth with a very respectable 47 points, followed by J.

Etchells Fleet 13 Super Bowl ODW Update 2

Despite the Super Bowl on Sunday, the turn-out for this coming weekend (Feb 4-5) is looking strong with 19 Etchells already registered and more expected (calling Chris Busch), with at least three teams travelling in from Seattle to enjoy our great weather and racing. The SDYC RC fleet will again cooperate with our request for shorter courses close to Zuniga Jetty for less transit time and more races, and get us ashore in time for the 3:30p kick-off on Sunday.
