Chris Kitchen came from New Zealand to partcipate and took out the regatta with a near perfect scoreline, dropping a 4th, Franck yves Escoffier was second and the mother daughter team of Petra and Nicole Landgraf were 3rd. The results are handicap and the singles give the doubles time.

Weta at the RYC demo day

2012-03-07_4378_smallboat1

Richmond Yacht Clubs annual Sail a Small Boat Day (demo day) was held on March 3 with incredibly clear skies, warm weather and light winds.  There were about 100 participants who got to try all sorts of small boats from Bic Open, El Toro, Ultimate 20, Weta Trimaran, Windrider, standup paddleboards, etc.  If success can be measured by how many free hotdogs were given to participants I think that 300 dogs is a mark of success.
