Luffing Lassies Milestone

The Luffing Lassies had a milestone victory on Tues. April 21 at Davis Island Yacht Club. The Clearwater Pram team won the Rainbow Regatta for the first time in the 41 years it has been raced. This was quite an accomplishment for our team of Gail Seidman, Jane Owens, Lisa Ehrhart and Barbara Branning. Barbara won the Master Pram sailor as well. The team worked hard for their victory and really deserved it. The wind was extremely light and the clear air start was key. Barbara was miles ahead and Lisa close behind. They almost passed the Opti fleet that started before hand. It was a great team effort with over 25 Lassies sailing or helping out and 2 of our Starboard Studs, Frank Girardin and Carrol Dzina, trailered their boat up to be a mark boat on the Pram course. It was so great to have familiar faces on the course when the other teams had coaching boats there to help them.

Great time to be a Lassie.
