Oxford Annual Regatta

Due to the Covid-19 virus, the Oxford Annual Regatta was held over multiple weekends this year.The Penguins sailed on Sunday, August 9th. We were joined by the senior Lasers on the race course off of the Oxford town park.The winds were out of the west and in the 2-5 knot range, with more emphasis on the lower end of the scale, especially for the latter races.Bill Lawson, sailing with his wife Colette Preis showed they hadnít forgotten how to make their boat go fast by winning three of the four races in the challenging and patience testing conditions.Charlie and Cairn Krafft managed to finish second although had more trouble in the later races as Scotty and Brook Allan improved dramatically after their first race and finished strong to beat Bill Lane, sailing with grandson Ethan Lane on the tie breaker for third.Bill took the award for top Classic Penguin.Jeff Cox sailed with his son Ethan to take 5th.Matt Lane, sailing with his daughter Annabelle sailed to a convincing victory in race 2, but retired after the third race as the races were quite long and hot, with race three within a few minutes of the one hour time limit.Sandy McAllister couldnít convince Annie Bartlett to crew for him, as Annieís dad, Jonathan was unable to attend, and sailed solo.Tait and Finn McCarthy sailed Sewall Coxís boat, Fox in Socks and were always in the mix in the closely packed fleet.John Atwood, in his newly acquired Airhead had a little trouble getting out to the race course and had to retire for the day.Hopefully we will see him at our next event.
