CLUB RACING NEWS : HIYC TRAVEL SAILORS UPDATE  

Chandler Owen finished tenth in the Day Sailer North American Championships crewing for Jim Fisher out of Severn Sailing Association on Chesapeake Bay last week.   Robin Richards finished fourth and won the last race sailing Kanaka, the boat that Chan and brother Bruce refurbished for her.  Bruce finished 18th sailing Hinemoa with his Dad Nolan (now 87) for the 57th year...the same place they earned in the gold fleet in the 80th Lightning Anniversary Regatta sailing Pandamonium on Skaneateles Lake (NY) with grandson Isaac (now 9) as foredeck crew and downwind helmsman two weeks before.

Smooth sailing,
Bruce Richards
