Huddleston Recap by Frank Kersting

The club’s historic Huddleston Cup is now ‘in the books with two names about to be engraved on the annual rotating trophies. There were several new members trying their hand at racing; Well Done and looking forward to seeing y’all and others out there for future racing!

The Race Committee, Bill Miller and Steve Stahl, provided ample racing with. as Bill Miller. commented, ‘his personal best’ of 7 races’ on Saturday. On Sunday, with an eye on the approaching weather, 2 additional races were completed in ever-increasing wind. Just as the last cruiser made it safely into the POYC dock, the rains came. Perfect timing Bill and Steve!! With everyone safely at the pavilion watching the torrent of rain, we finished off the barbecue and fixins’ from Saturday night’s delicious dinner. Thanks to Debbie for the Sunday desert and to Carol and Leah for a superb dinner.
The racing results:
Dinghy class- First Place-Joe Brownfield

Cruiser class- First Place- Kevin Klarer
Second Place-first-time racer Leah McMurtrey with Carl Kersting as crew: a solid all women crew who forgot this was Fathers’ Day weekend:)
Third Place: Rob Hatcher

Plan to join fellow racers for the Glow Regatta next Saturday evening!
