This year we had a special guest join us for the Annapolis NOOD. Ed’s oldest nephew, Daniel, age 9, came to Annapolis with Grandpa to sail with his uncle on Michael Gavin’s Etchells. He must have been good luck because they won a race and also finished 2nd in another race! This was Daniel’s first time on a keel boat and he did a great job. Hopefully we will have him come sail again and in the future the other nephews and niece as they get a little bit older.
Becky ended up sailing Melges 24’s with Pieter Tiesler on Bliksem. Pieter currently owns a Melges 32 and chartered the M24 to try it out. He and the team definitely had fun and we hope to see them in the Melges 24 class again soon!
I am heading down from Annapolis to Charleston with the Sail22 box trailer to get ready for Charleston Race Week. They have a record turn out this year with over 180 boats registered. I have a few boat projects on some Melges 24’s when I first get there. Then practice on Thursday and racing through the weekend. Check back here for photos. Becky is flying in to Charleston tonight from St. Pete where she competed in the Rolex Women’s Match Racing Regatta. Check out the regatta website here. And give us a call to see where we are set up and swing by if you need anything or just to say Hi! and have a beer on us. You can check out the new Velocitek Speedpuck, Dubarry Newports or some of the Melges gucci parts we are working on.
