Dr. Bob Howell's CYMRU wins Cape Charles Cup

LCSA's CYMRU Wins 2011 Cape Charles Cup Cruising Division.
(Sept 2011) Dr Bob Howell and his team on CYMRU ate up the race course in the 2011 Cape Charles Cup held on August 20th and 21st. They had a great race on Saturday, and matched it with another excellent performance on Sunday to win the overall award.

The award goes to the boat with the lowest corrected time for the 2 days combined. On Saturday CYMRU was second in their Cruising A division, good enough for third overall on the day. Then on Sunday, Bob & his team won their division, and again were third overall for the day. The combined corrected times were the shortest of all, good for the overall win in the 52 boat division.

American Rover Annual BBSA Cruise on the good ship American Rover .
(April 2011) BBSA will take its annual sail on the American Rover on Tuesday, April 19th, which is our regular meeting night. We will be boarding the Rover promptly at 6:45pm for a 7:00pm cruise. Members and their immediate families have been guests of Captain Brook Smith (son of Sonny Smith) on the American Rover for over 15 years. Please bring a snack or appetizer to share, and of course drinks are available for purchase from the bar onboard as in years past. Even though the trip is a free membership benefit, the crew will be working hard to earn your generous tip. We’ll be taking a collection at the end of the cruise to show the crew our appreciation.
