Wayfarers shine at HOT III
(141104) Eight Wayfarers acquitted themselves very well in a 31-boat fleet that turned out for the 3rd annual Hallowe'en-on-the-Townsend (HOT) Regatta hosted by the Lake Townsend YC October 25-26 outside of Greensboro, NC. Again this year, the event raised hundreds of dollars for earlier.org, a charity devoted to paying for research into the earlier detection of breast cancer. The weather gods obviously approved of our fund-raising efforts as they provided summer temperatures of around 80°F. More here.
Lovely R&R by the Sea
(141104) Six of us enjoyed the some top-class rest and relaxation at the Heffernans' beach house between regattas again this year. Thanks a million, Linda and Jim. More soon.
Old Brown Dog Succeeds Despite Weather
(141107) Hallowe'en brought a unique trick to the Catawba YC Wayfarers and MC's preparing to do battle Nov. 1-2 in the 3rd annual Old Brown Dog Regatta: a lengthy downpour of pea-sized hail preceeded a record-breaking cold front. And we were lucky; 50 miles to the south, Columbia, SC got 22" of snow. Saturday's strong winds and a high of 5°C (above) then brought an applauded cancellation of the day's racing. Marginally warmer sunshine and more reasonable winds permitted us to sail four races and complete the 2014 Wayfarer season on a high note. Results & photos posted.
