2006 Roy Woolsey Regatta

September 24, 2006

Lido Isle Yacht Club

With winds averaging in the teens and gusting up to about 20 mph, sailing was a far more demanding than the tranquil winds Newport Harbor usually provides.  After a few capsizes and mishaps, competitors convinced the race committee to abandon the scheduled 5th race and call it a day at 4.  Bob Yates and crew Pat Kincaid, who have sailed together for many years, normally weigh in heavy relative to other top Lido 14 racing days.  Today was the payoff as they were able to put every extra ounce to good use in keep the boat flat and fast.

Roy Woolsey, who is approaching 90 years of age, was competitive as ever until a difficult multi-boat convergence led to a collision and Roy capsizing.  Not to be fazed, however, he went home (just a few blocks away) dried off, changed, and came back out to race again.  In the fourth race, the high winds got him this time and he capsized in race number 4.  Ever the trooper, he went back home again, dried off, changed, and showed up in good style and spirits for the large BBQ gathering held in his honor later that evening.  Hooray for Roy!

Chris Killian comfortably won the B fleet sailing in his brand new Lido 14 #6297.
