28 boats sailed the combined 34th Annual Doc Gilbert Potomac Cup and 2018 Dixie District Championship Regatta!

Congratulations to Craig Cobbum and his crew for winning, as well as all competitors who participated in the combined 34th Annual Doc Gilbert Potomac Cup & 2018 Dixie Districts! Bruce Bingman and his RC crew were able to get off two races – very noteworthy given the very light and shifty conditions.  The turnout from both visiting boats and Fleet 50 sailors was fantastic!

In addition, congratulations to Trevor Pryor and his crew for winning the Dixie District Purnell Cup, and Nabeel Alsalam and his crew Tom Hutton and Jess Harrington for winning the Doc Gilbert Potomac Cup Trophy.

2018 Dixie 

Annual General Meeting and Potluck a great success!

Lightning Fleet 50 Annual General Meeting and Potluck was hosted at the Lane’s on 24 February. It was a wonderful feast and sharing of sailing.  We had a number of new members, including Geof and his crew Quintin and Gigi, and his wife Melissa, as well as Kevin and his son Carl and wife Theresa.  So glad to see the fleet growing – and having the sailing kids at this event.

Congrats to all of those who won awards and were recognized for all of their contributions! Wear those hats, and drink from those engraved flasks in good health. So glad to have so many new members and sailors this year – special throw out to our Best New Crew (crewing for their dad, Geof ) Quintin and Gigi. See you all on the water – Mark Room!
