Speaking of elections, I want to thank all our volunteers that have stepped up to fill in all the seats for the 2011-2012 AYC Board. I’m looking forward to working with Emory and the new team from the Jr. Staff “chair.”

Enjoy the rest of spring! Hope to see you on the water!

Buccaneer Gift Exchange – December Meeting

The proceedings of the AYC Annual Christmas Party – A.K.A Buccaneer Gift Exchange (no relation to the fleet, although…) were full of cheer and merriment.  Here is a little bit of what went on…

The Overall Winner of the Governor’s Cup for 2010 was awarded to Gene Muller for best overall corrected time.  Norm Anderson (PHRF Spin) and Trey Harlow (Portsmouth) were on hand to collect their individual fleet trophies.

Mike and Jo Grijalva were on hand to deliver a Burgee from ????  Mike was also the winner (AGAIN) of the Newport to Ensenada race.

The Blunder Bucket was (finally) awarded to Emory Heisler for getting his back window taken out by the mast of his Bucc, Erin Morgan, when his trailer popped off the hitch (because hd didn’t close the latch!) on his way to the fiberglass repair shop (which is an entirely different Blunder Bucket nomination).  And while there were may other nominations, including Bob Worral for his “gift” at the exchange, Emory’s tale of gross bafoonary was by far the favorite of the group.




As always, the Buccaneer Gift Exchange was great fun for all!  Lots of Bootie – some great, some, well…not so great (Trailer tire? Really Bob?)


Governor’s Cup Scores Posted

UPDATED – After a couple of corrections on PHRF/Portsmouth Ratings we have RE-Posted the Results to the Governor’s Cup.

The fleet scores from the 2010 Governor’s Cup are available.  These are the fleet scores, but remember the NOR states that the cup will be awarded to “the boat finishing the race with “outstanding seamanship” over the 26.2 mile course as voted on by a board of volunteers made up of fleet representatives.” So be sure to come to the December Membership Meeting to find out who gets that HUGE Rum Grog…I mean…Trophy…yeah.

AND in case you didn’t remember (ha ha), the December Membership Meeting is always our Buccaneer Gift Exchange!
