Rahn's on top at 2013 Wayfarer U,S. Nat'ls & Midwinter's



Peter and Alex Rahn have won the joint 2013 Annual Midwinter International Wayfarer and U.S. National Championship Regatta. Hosted by the Lake Eustis Sailing Club in Florida, the regatta has been a favoured February getaway for the father and son team from Beaconsfield Yacht Club. Peter and Alex took bullets in seven out of eight races. Regular winter rivals, Jim and Linda Heffernan took the other race win. Judging from the picture here, the Rahn duo were still feeling the heat of the fleet.

The Rahn's also met Will Hendershot from Club Des Voiles Deux Montagnes sailing his MC Scow at the same venue. The MC Scows were sailing their Trainwreck Regatta. Will took 15th out of 41 entries

28 degrees centigrade apparently!
