Great “Under 30” Regatta this weekend. It was a more difficult event to run b/c literally everyone is in a borrowed boat and this year we were not allowed to use SSA infrastructure, so massive amounts of volunteer effort was required, but it was SO worthwhile because of the positive energy from the sailors and a positive promotion of the Snipe Class.
It couldn’t have happened without our “Marching Army of Volunteers”: Charter Coordinator and Friday night party Chris Ryan, PRO Steve Podlich, Marks/facilities support from EYC thru Hollis Wolford O’Hare and Liz Merrifield Filter, Clinic by North Sails’ Steve Pickel, Saturday night party and RC duty by Doug & Diane Frazee, Housing, transportation, and cake from Sandy Westphal, photos by Jill Bennett, Photo Boat Henry Filter, Registration and RC support Nancy Green Gilreath, SCIRA Rep, boat prep, scoring and RC by Alex Pline, Trophies and Logo from Lorie Stout Bryan Stout and Stoutgear Promotional Products, RC duty by Mark Fuhrman, Tracie Leonard, Tim Mowry, and Sonya Smith
Biggest thanks, though, go to those who let these talented junior sailors borrow their boats and/or sails for the weekend: Sonya Smith, Brian Hetherington, Bryan Fishback, Marta Wallace, Henry Filter, Dave Watson, John Upton, Peter Commette, Ernesto, and Gavin O’Hare.
