late-breaking Wayfarer news
from Canada and abroad:

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 80F. 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 5C (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.
