Champions Regatta

Postby kahle67 » Sun Mar 18, 2012 8:05 pm

Jon Luscomb put on a fine performance to top the fleet and take home the championship and the Sir Francis of Graham Trophy. For the most part it was summertime weather with light fluky air and we fed the bugs well. Congratulations Jon! Thank you Mark, Carter, Nick, Skip and all of the volunteers that traveled to run this event. It was certainly a fun weekend!

Top three names to go on the trophy:

1st Jon Luscomb
2nd Reichard Kahle
3rd Alan Perkins
Reichard Kahle Jr
Charleston, SC

Nicely done brother O mine. That was a well earned victory as they don't come easy in this class. Their was no shortage of possible winners in that line up.

I almost forgot. Since Reichard is also a member of the Florida Association, we can claim that Florida had a clean sweep. 1,2,3...GO FLORIDA!

Yes, I know, he represented Dixie, but he is a four time Florida Champion and that makes him a Floridian to me.

Big time CONGRATS Jon in winning the Champions regatta and bringing home the "Sir Francis on Graham" trophy to Fla.Job well done! I'm sure Uncle Frank is smiling. :D How did you escape the dunking in the lake? I did hear you got an H20 shower from Ricky(the Joker)Gerry though.

Now that I have re-entered the atmosphere, Thanks to Mark and his team for running a fun event and to my fellow competitors for rooting for me. I had a blast and was surprised at the results. I did not expect to do anything but learn (which I did) a lot.

It was great to sail with all of you. I have dusted the Sir Francis of Graham Trophy and it is sitting proudly on our mantel!

See you all net March!

By the way - This was our first trip ever to Charleston and Karen and I fell in love with the place!

Best,
Jon Luscomb

Please find a video of the 2nd race which lasted about 30 Mins and had to be split into two movies for youtube to handle it.

Note the max resolution is 1080 x 720p.....you may select a resolution suitable for your environment.
