    USSAILING Champions of Champions regatta

    It is cool that he's mixing it up, but its not new for an Opti champ to do well at the CofC. For those that follow this event, you might remember Matthew Wefer finishing 3rd overall (!!!) in Flying Scots a few years back representing the Opti class.

    USSAILING Champions of Champions regatta

    Given the list below, the crew factor will be huge. Moriarty, Starck, Fowler, Wake, Hunt, Speery, etc. all will help their respective teams. This will be a good one to see how it all plays out. If the wind is light, Terhune, Linton and Fisher are going to be dangerous. Breezy, watch out for...
