    Dance II. Larry Kohls, CYC. CHA 70. 1983 Chicago to Mackinac Race. IOR Section 1, rated 53.5. Of course, the SuperMacs were longer and there may be other races that lay claim to being the longest, but CYC often used this description, accurate or not. And I think 'annual' may have been part of the description, now that I think back. .

    Sorry to say that Tom Leutwiler has passed on. This is from wikipedia. I think it's accurate... The 1980s were the peak years for Leutwiler Photography, as the annual calendar became a bigger staple of the sailboat racing world with each passing year, and his classic and new portraits continued to be a success. But after nearly twenty years of hard work and devotion, Leutwiler lost his passion and drive for sailboat photography and closed down the business in the 1990, selling off his negatives and camera equipment. He moved to Salt Lake City, Utah in the early 1990s and pursued a variety of other interests including real estate ventures. In 1993, he died in Salt Lake City. Source: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tom_Leutwiler NOTE: I'm sure there are sailors here that have Leutwiler photos. I'd be proud if some of his photos became part of this thread.
