|On the way to the racing area one occasionally sees very nice homes along the banks of the river.|
|When was the last time you saw a Lightning with a three digit sail number? This boat probably dates to the late 1930s and is well preserved.|
|On the way out to the starting line the Thistles explore the possibility of flying spinnakers. The wind was from the Northwest and hence very light and fluky all day.|

Last year Classic Moth Boats were the most numerous class at this regatta. This year we managed to muster three boats: Victor Stango in his Paul Lindenberg design, Bob Patterson in the Shelley and John Zseleczky in the Mistral. I'll be back on the water next year!
|The Lindenberg design is a single chine shape with a gentle V-bottom.|
|The Shelley Moth has a flatter run aft of the centerboard trunk than the Lindenberg. She is essentially a scaled down version of John Shelley's successful International-14 from the early 1960s.|
