Lucky Strike is a West Michigan boat, just further North, with West Michigan roots, and winter home is Torresen.  1st in Bayview Mac, 1st to finish and 2nd (due to penalty) in Chi Mac.  

Congrats to Lucky Strike!  My bad for the oversight!

Congrats to all the West Michigan boats that did well in the Mac this year.  Here is probably a partial list.


Aftershock--first in class, third overall

Gauntlet--first in class

Bad Dog--second in class

Spirit Walker--second in class

Buzz--second in class

Heartbreaker--third in class

Souveneir--4th in class

Standard Deviation--4th in class

Windancer--5th in class


Pretty impressive.  As a proportion of boats entered from MYC, that is probably the best set of results in the race.

I have some good shots of Luckie Dubie--J111 on the delivery home.  Just south of Grays Reef.

The Tripp 33 was a horrible boat...never sailed to its ratings!

Not true.  We sail ours to its rating regularly.  We regularly podium in club racing as well as major regattas.  Not a great distance racing boat but really fun around the buoys.  Love the boat...mine is a 1992 and still going strong.

Congrats to the STD boys on their 3rd at the Chicago NOODs!  


My big question--how were temps on the delivery?  I'm thinking ahead to a (hopefully not too) cold Queen's...

STD is back in Muskegon.  Delivery chaps said it was actually warmer coming home than going down--though a bit bumpier coming home!  See you all Wednesday!
