The 2013 Penguin Internationals were held August 15-16 at Miles River Yacht Club in St Michaels Md.
15 boats raced in the 70th running of this event. 2 boats traveled from Chicago including the 2012 International Champs Bob and Jenna Findley.
Conditions never went over 6kts for the very shifty 5 race series which was raced on the Miles River.
The Penguin class has a number of awards that are presented at the Internationals.
Lawson family Trophy goes to the highest finishing family boat Scott and Charlie Williamson
Jr Trophy for highest place Junior Read Beigel and Maggie Shult
GrandMasters trophy Bill Lane
Classic Boat Bill Lane and Sarah Rust
First Female Skipper Adison Parrish. Please note Adison is 10 yrs old.
When the smoke cleared the 2013 International Champions were Jonathan Bartlett and Caroline McNeil. 2nd was very hotly contested with a 3 way tie. Breaking the tie and awarded 2nd were Read Beigel and Maggie Shult. Bill Lane and Sarah Rust were 3rd and long time Penguin Sailor Hank Kraft was 4th. Past Champion Charlie Krafft and Donna McKenzie rounded out the top 5.
Thanks again to Miles River for great hospitality including a fabulous dinner Thursday evening. Also a special thank you to Dick Kelly for being the PRO of the event and coordinating the Championship.
