Two weeks ago it was at Tawas and the US Nationals where Uncle Al and Frank Goulay came back from a seemingly hopeless deficit to win races 4 and 5 and create a three-way tie at the top before completing the Cinderella story with one more win in the final show-down race. Then, in last week's Pumpkin Regatta at London's Fanshawe YC, things again came down to the final race, winner take all, Al and crew, Dave McCreedy, hoping to pass Leo and Joanne Van Kampen. As had happened in the previous four races, Al fell far behind early only to make an improbable recovery to win that race and the series. Al and Dave sailed extremely well but horseshoes were a significant factor - as indeed they were during Al's early demises as well.  Complete report here. Coverage now completed.
Storer Trophy season winding down
(171010) Only four Wayfarers in light airs at the VISA Regatta (Virginia Inland SA) October 7-8. One change to the top ten: Phil and Cathy Leonard picked up three points for their 2nd-place finish behind AnnMarie Covington, and moved past the Van Kampens, Leo and Joanne, into 10th place. The four points AnnMarie scored for her win were no better than any of the six finishes she was already counting so she remains tied for 6th with Richard Johnson. Only two events remain on our 2017 schedule, the HOT and the Old Brown Dog regattas at the end of the month More here.

Rest in Peace, North Bay Regatta!
(171017) Future North Bay Wayfarer Weekend enjoyment will need to be via nostalgia mode. In an email earlier this morning from Brisbane, Australia, Regatta Chair, Dave Hansman, confirmed that he has no plans to organize any more of these events. Many million Whiffle Web thanks to David and Carol for the many glorious memories that they and their events have given us.
