LNYC Carolina Keelboat One Design (CKOD) 2011

Great turnout for the LNYC CKOD  held on November 11-13, 2011.  16 boats came from as far away as Canada and Florida.  Thanks to Charlie & Lynn Cushing and Jim Pearson, Ken Gow, Mike Bremer, Doug Crall for making the effort to come race on Lake Norman.

PRO Treez Decker and her team did a terrific job in running 5 races.  Terrific competition, tight mark roundings , and breeze ranging from 8-18 made it a fun way to end the 2011 season. 

Jim Pearson ran away with first place, but the rest of the finishes were tight and not decided till the final race. 

Congratulations to Mark Aspland and Eric Rosentreter, both from LNYC,  for their 2nd & 3rd finishes, respectively.  Had Don Corey and crew remembered which of Don’s “fleet” they were racing, they would have acknowledged the OCS hail and would have been a strong contender for the top 3 spots. 

Chris Gorni, LNYC was 5th and Dean Nelson, LNYC, 6th. 

Look out for Allison Jones- she may not give the helm back to BJ!  With her 2 best finishes at 3, 4 she has asked for a U20 for Christmas!
