  • Hugh Freund and his “Team Valiant” takes 1st Place for the 2016 Sonar Class Association Midwinter Championship!!

    Rick Doerr Midwinter copyThe SCA Midwinter Championship once again provided spectacular weather and 9 great races over the 3 day weekend. This year’s version also included several top contenders for the Rio Paralympics, and was the first time ever an SCA sanctioned regatta was sailed as an Appendix B event, which limits the racing to 2 sails and the addition of a whisker pole.

    The SCA Midwinter Championship not only featured some great racing by Paralympic contenders, but also with Wounded Warrior teams from USA and GBR competing, it made it an even more rewarding experience featuring great camaraderie and sportsmanship between the disabled sailors and non disabled alike.

    In the end, Team Valiant with Rick Doerr, Brad Kendell and Hugh Freund took first place with 24 points. Second went to Team Bandit, helmed by Andy Fisher, with 26 points. Third was Team CAN 835 with 27.
