As the “2014 Big Inland” came to an end, Vincent Porter took the first two vowels, A & E. The E Class came down to an uncle nephew battle with the elder grabbing a tie for total points, but coming up short on firsts. Vincent with his crew Clifford Porter, Coye Harrett, and Alisa Freytag, powered on taking two firsts.

To Quote Jane Pegel:
“It is not because we have past champions.
It is not because we will have a new clubhouse.
It is because our members are darn good sailors.”
After nine races of the 12-race Melges 24 World Championship off Australia’s Royal Geelong YC, 2001 World Champion and 2013 World runnerup Flavio Favini has taken the lead at the Melges 24 World Championship regatta, two points ahead of the Harry Melges team, who have a 2-2-3-5-1-1-8-(13)-3 for 25 points. In third is 2009 World Champion Chris Larson with 28 points. As crew, Melges has tactician Andy Burdick, Jeff Ecklund, and Federico Michetti.
