Copa del Rey Regatta

First a two-night sail from Corsica to Menorca, Spain and on to Majorca for the Kings Regatta. Crew of Matt, Matt, Nora, Scott and Charlie – the Lady GaGa crowd stayed slept on the boat – with Susan, Jack, Cissy, Kristine and Ken in the on-shore apartment. After four days of racing tied with J122 – Noisy Oyster – only to lose the challenged bottle of Champagne on the last race.

The Mediterranean Trophy Regatta

Ajaccio to Bonaficio, Corsica to La Maddalena , Isla Rossa in Italy, and back to Propriano and Ajaccio in Corsica. Matt, Matt Molly (the three M’s), Gordie and Ken were the crew. Terrific sailing and great parties every night, the fleet loved the blender. Placed 25th out of forty boats, with a different port every night.

San Remo to San Tropez

The French Riviera, Cote d’ Azur. The crew of Brian, Beth, Paul, Matt, Ann Marie, Vicki and Ken sailed San Remo (the Italian Riviera), Cannes (where we met up with Grateful Red sailor Dan Neely), Antibes, San Raphael and finally back to San Tropez. Got lucky to find the last slip in the downtown San Raphael marina and spent time in the old city.
