Man Overboard Story on Scuttlebutt by Captain Jack McClurkin

 

Captain Jack This Scuttlebutt entry by one of our own Flying Scot sailors in the Midwest is a must read for all of us sailing in areas where the water stays cold into the early summer.  Captain Jack holds a USCG Master’s license and has been sailing for 50 years. During the summer he drives a commercial passenger riverboat in Chicago, sails his Flying Scot, and crews on a Tartan Ten.  To view the full story pn Scuttlebutt, click here

2014 Great 48 Regatta at Lake Norman Yacht Club, Mooresville, NC - Day 1

Mark Riefenhauser reports that they had another great day at the Great 48.  Finicky winds proved to be a challenge to both the racers and race committee, but they managed to get in two races. They attempted a third race but after trying to no avail due to the incoporating winds they abandoned for the day.  ALthough Mark managed to steer clear of it all, there may have been a few protests in the first race due to a tight mark rounding with multiple boats bumping into and overtaking one another.  With 38 boats participating, Paul Abdullah from Floridaa Yacht Club leads after Day 1, breaking the tiebreaker with local LNYC sailor Chuck Gise, and Ben Williams from Clinton Lake in Illinois in 3rd place so far.  Should be a great day 2 - resutls after day 1 can be found here
