Karl Millen Regatta
Our Annual Karl Millen Regatta will be held Saturday July 15th with a skippers meeting at 10:30 AM with racing to start soon after. While this started as primarily a dinghy regatta, it is open to all classes and all are welcome. Come out and support your club and let’s have a great time out on the water.
Yankee Doodle Recap by Frank Kersting
A patriotic song, sung with feeling by the POYC sailors and guests, began the evening’s activities. The pavilion was full with club members and guests. The ‘Yankee Doodle’ is Herb Siewert’s favorite regatta where he insisted on pork barbecue, sometimes smoked on the property. For the 2017 regatta, his daughter and family joined the festivities. Welcome and trust we will see you more often!
The dinner was excellent, as all the side dishes were scraped clean. Taking time for the featured Carolina chicken sandwiches to settle, the anticipated dessert: homemade ice cream, was served. The sweet treat by Debbie and Steve was so delicious, the containers were also scraped clean. No need to wash them!!
After the tables were cleared, Debbie showed the feature movie, ‘Wind,’ one of the top 10 best sailing movies. With surround sound that Steve connected, watching a sailing movie with fellow sailors and boats in the yard added. Special flare.
The Yankee Doodle was shortened due to threatening weather but two races in light wind were completed.
The results were:
Dinghy- 1st Barry Sanders
2nd. Joe Brownfield
Cruiser- 1st Frank Kersting
2nd Greg Glass
3rd. Chris & Andrew Eaton. This was their first placement in racing- welcome to the racing fleet!
What a wonderful way to celebrate July 4, remembering the precious gifts we have in this great nation.
Yankee Doodle is Sunday July 2nd!
