Special thanks to club members Matt Guttman and Randy Perroth who assisted a boat that was unfortunate enough to dismast in the Ambrose channel.
SHBCC had 3 teams competing: Greg Raybon and Nancy Kornblum took 11th place, Mark and Grace Modderman took 3rd place, and Eric Raybon and Casey Larson took 6th place.

The weather was mostly cooperative, we had a fleet race around the bay, and Sunday was a particularly nice sailing day.
Approximately 50 people attended and brought their families with them. Everyone enjoyed steaks, clams, salads, cake, and excellent live music.
Thanks to Tommy Butler for bringing his friends to play a great set for everyone. Also thanks to our Vice Commodore, Skip, for organizing the event. And finally, thanks to Kathy Butler for making the salads.
