We were thrilled to have 5 Fleet 50 Lightnings (Frank, Bobby, Aaron, Chris, and Red) participate in the 2012 DC Sail Cantina Cup on August 11. We ended up having a fantastic day for the racing as well, with a consistent southerly 10-12 kt breeze that allowed the DC Sail RC to set up a nice, long W-L course and get us 5 races on Saturday afternoon with plenty of time to spare for the energetic after party.
Congratulations to Frank and Maryann Gallagher for a great job on the water to win first place and take possession of one of the coveted Cantina Cup victory trophies – an absolutely massive cup (filled with a tantalizing mystery drink, I’m told!). Race results are posted here. Thanks to John Kircher, Erin Helland, and Molly Riley, we also have lots of great photos from the regatta, which you can view via the link on our Fleet 50 Photos/Videos page.
