Zane won the Travel Trophy, who told the tale of breaking down 130 miles from Montrose with broken springs and more and were rescued by a trailer specialist after a huge wait. Rumor has it that his return drive was also challenging!
Bob Bernstein won the Presidents Trophy – for leading the hosting of 2016 Nationals on top of his long and storied contributions and participation in the class. Click here for the full story.
Congratulations also to the Chicago Corinthian YC for putting on a first class regatta. Everybody had a great time.
Rhodes 19 keel. Cast iron. Sandblasted and primed with Kem Paint. Very good condition. Ready to Fair. It is 5 pounds under class weight so will finish out right on the money. Was going to put it on another boat but changed boats. Located in Chicago and can be brought to Nationals for pick up. Make a good offer and it’s yours.
