Sail Bear Charity Regatta (Big Bear, CA) June 20/21

The first day was medium winds while Sunday was a big blow, thus giving a good test for everyone's all-around skills. Bob and Stu were constantly at the top with a few others challenging from time to time. In the end, it came down to the final race with Bob and Stu having a tacking duel up the last beat. To add a little spice at the end, John Papadopoulos just about sneaked past both of them but ultimately fouled Bob right at the finish, leaving Stu the repeat winner of the Sail Bear Charity Regatta. In the B's, several Lido 14 newcomers, Stan & Susan Betts, dominated the fleet. Stan is very well known for his work in race management at Mission Bay Yacht Club (San Diego, CA). He recently purchased a 6000 series Lido and has been doing quite nicely in it. Congratulations to Stu, Russell, Stan and Susan.
