Duane Delfosse wins The Loon Cup


Report/photos from Syd Sewall:

The Loon Cup ....we sail off of a small island connected with a dirt causeway on Lake Cobbosseecontee west of Augusta, ME. It's a beautiful lake, and we often are entertained by Loon and Osprey calls, as well as passing by herons and eagles. 

This year's race was on a beautiful but light day. We got in two reasonable W5 type races with a shifty northerly 3-6 kn before the wind died completely. Occasional ripples showed up briefly for the next hour to tempt us to start, but nothing was sustained. Then a consistent S-SW showed up, and we had one more race in 1-5 before hitting shore for a cookout. Results and a photo attached....we had great attendance, with only a half dozen from our local group and the rest from "away".  

The last event in our "Maine Series" is in mid October in Thomaston.
