    J111 Sailing on the Great Lakes--Summer 2016

    Humbling. Learned a ton. Loved it. Can't wait for the Mac! Hroth excellent, some boats have been sailed for quite some time. great seeing you guys on the line, enjoy the Mac. They are a pretty sweet boat for the run North. You guys stepped on to a great class of OD sail boat racing Great people, you mentioned you learned a lot, do not forget to ask, every one is willing to help Thank you to all the volunteers that helped putting 2016 J 111 NA event together, John Travis, Len Siegle, Chicago Yacht Club at Belmont just to name a few It was our third NA in the Class and one World regatta, we also learned a lot in this class . We learned that people are kind , we learned that in tough times every one in the class will give you a big hug Unfortunately it may have been our last regatta on the Mighty Wotton due to the circumstances Sail on Bill Smith Dorin Team Wooton I'm so glad Bill had a chance to work into a great one design class. His skill at taking a challenge and working through all the best solutions, building the team, was leading him to the same success as he had in development. Does any one know what the name Wooton is from? It's a desk! But not any desk a very fine unique desk that I can best describe as the Smart Phone of the 19th century. Look it up. He was a 21st century Renaissance man. Big ideas and follow through. That's what Bill could do, see the best of the best and be on the lead edge of progress. I will miss his frienshp and the great insight that Bill has brought to all things. Team Wooton Arv

    I don't think there is any racing this weekend. However, checking the A3 website, there is only 1 entry for ALL races this year so far. What gives?
