It’s been awhile since either of us have sailed E-Scows, but Travis Weisleder, who Ed races Melges 24′s with, recently purchased one and asked us to come join him for the E-Scow Easterns at at Bay Head and Mantoloking Yacht Clubs in New Jersey. The Boat is named “Lucky Dog”, hence the fire hydrant on the spinnaker and there is a great “Lucky Dog” logo on the stern of the boat. Both logos also make appearance on the team gear we helped him to get for the team.
The breeze was pretty light for much of the racing and we definitely need some more practice when it comes to light conditions before we compete in Nationals, but in the big breeze we excelled! Thanks to Travis’ parents, Sally & Brook who hosted us at their beautiful home on the river which made the event very enjoyable!
