New for 2019--Friday Evening Pre-Race Seminar - Friday May 31, 4:00pm to 6:00pm

"Uncle" Al Schonborn, winner of last year's Mayor's Cup Regatta will be giving a seminar on racing rules and strategy at Lake Townsend Yacht Club on Friday evening.  Uncle Al hails from Ontario, Canada, and as a big fan of the Lake Townsend Yacht Club, he makes the trip to North Carolina to sail in the Mayor's Cup every year. An extraordinary sailor and enthusiastic ambassador who has been a Wayfarer since acquiring W116 in 1964, he has compiled a fabulous sailing resource known the world over – see his popular websites (http://wayfarer-canada.org  and http://wayfarer-international.org).  Beyond his sailing skills, he's just plain fun to be around!  Al will bring copies of his book "Kiss Your Dinghy" to purchase for $30.00.  You can sign up for the rare NC opportunity to learn from this luminary on our Club's "Scratch Sheet" and attend the seminar even if you aren't planning to race.
