Lake Townsend Wayfarers dominate
2017 LESC Wayfarer Solo regatta

(170225)  It was close but no cigar for Lake Townsend Wayfarer, AnnMarie Covington, (above) who saw a seemingly secure lead vanish near the finish line of Saturday's light-wind race #1. As AnnMarie got blanketed by some Flying Scots with whom we were sharing the Lake Eustis waters, the wily veteran, Jim Heffernan, snatched a win right at the finish line. That set the stage for a Heffernan series win as Jim won both - long delayed - Sunday races decisively and swept this year's event. Results and albums here. Report coming soon.

Lake Eustis Team Aces Midwinters 2017
(170215)  No sooner did Nick Seraphinoff get our long-time friend, Dave Moring, into a Wayfarer at long last, than Dave and crew, Arial Harrington (above), beat out a hot fleet of 20 Wayfarers to capture the 2017 Wayfarer Midwinters, hosted for the 18th time by our beloved Lake Eustis SC in Florida. Results, nine albums, 7 videos and some Go-Pro videos here. Report coming soon, along with numerous additional photos. FLASH! I have discovered about 60 more of my Mids pics - mostly ashore - and added them to the relevant albums.

... I am looking for rear seats for a Wayfarer or CL16. I am hoping that someone has pair that I can buy.  Email me at and we can make arrangements.
