Congratulations to Sue Pilling and Steph Romaniuk, our 2015 Storer Trophy winners
(14 Nov 15) Despite sailing only three of the four major events, defending champions, Sue Pilling and Steph Romaniuk of Parry Sound have repeated as winners of the Storer Trophy. Calculated ... More here ...
Good racing and fine friendship abound as Carolina Week brings down the curtain
on our 2015 Wayfarer sailing season
(13 Nov 15) Led by Jim and Linda Heffernan's fine overall victory in a 27-boat fleet, nine Wayfarers made a impressive showing at the 4th annual HOT Regatta hosted by the Lake Townsend YC near Greensboro, NC on behalf of earlier.org and the fight against breast cancer. All photos and report now posted.
Relaxing Beach Week between regattas!
the usual suspects:(151111) It was a bit on the rainy side, but what better place to be than the Heffernans' beach house on Emerald Isle near Beaufort, NC!! All the comforts of home plus the Atlantic Ocean in clear, grand and lovely view! More soon here.

Only Wednesday was deemed "sailable" by us softies. Here we had just launched onto Beaufort's Taylor Creek and were on our way past downtown Beaufort, out into the ocean along Shackleford Banks towards the Cape Lookout Lighthouse and a picnic lunch. Alcohol may have been involved. Albums and report coming soon.
The Johnsons, Richard and Michele, victorious in Old Brown Dog at Catawba
(151123) A well matched fleet of eight Wayfarers shared Lake Wylie with eight MC Scows in challenging winds and the occasional shower Nov. 7-8 at the Catawba YC near Charlotte, NC. The 6-race series in light to medium winds, produced a tie at the top with our hosts themselves, Richard Johnson and Michele (above right), not to forget Black Skimmer, won the tie-breaker over Uncle Al (above left) who set a precedent as he became the first North American Wayfarer to sail solo and win (at least) one race in an open regatta. HOT winners, Jim and Linda, took 3rd overall. More soon. Much more!! Results and photos by Kristin Doebler and Uncle Al posted here.
