July 7,2018 – Woodward Wins Moby’s Marathon
Jun 16, 2018- Allan Strain Wins a Wild Opener
The fleet of 12 lasers and 2 big boats (actually a Lightning and a Flying 15) survives highly changeable Westerly winds, an ankle deep portage across the Fishermans Island sandbar (with a few barnacly rocks), and total calms at Surge Rock. A large number of capsizes and even one abandoned boat were testament to the challenges.
Allan Strain handled it all with aplomb racking two bullets and taking home (figuratively) the Trophy. Allan Sturgess kept his nose clean for a 5 and 2 and second place. And clearly Steve Whilte has learned to gybe in heavier winds as he went error free for a 3 and 6 and ended in 3rd place. With 2 wins Bill Cote’s Revenuer added another Lantern Trophy win to his collection

Oct 7, 2017 – Brian Woodward Repeats as Season Champ
Heading into the final race of the season, a tough battle was promised between the 3 front runners for the season championship. At least it was tough competition for 2 of the 3 (the Commodore wiffed on the challenge). Brian Woodward posted more consistent results in all races and made up 3 points on Steve White to win the Silver Plate by 1 point. In true SPOG style, this point was one given to Brian on redress for beer consumed during the Moby’s Marathon.
