Harbor 20 Summer Party Recap

And what a Summer Party Fiesta it was!  Lido Isle Yacht Club cleared its docks to welcome 31 Harbor 20 sailboats and about 117 Harbor 20 enthusiasts on a spectacular Sunday afternoon.  We had 12 boats that were new to our events and perhaps even racing for the first time.  So, after some basic rules and racing clinic time with Class President Peter Haynes, these new C Fleet skippers and guests had two races on the water.

Meanwhile the nine As and ten Bs raced up and down the bay.  It was a beautiful sight to see all 31 Harbor 20s tied neatly at the docks thanks to LIYC Rear Commodore Carter Ford aka “Dock Master of the Day!”

The after party found all of us at tables on the grass munching on Ensenada-style tacos topped off with frozen Margaritas while being serenading by Mariachis! Food and drink were the brainchild of our sensational Mindy Froehlich.  LIYC social maven Kathleen Sangster once again guided us to a beautiful setting of tables on the grass. Among the volunteers who carried the tables and chairs out and in were Andy Binkerd, Bob Yates, Roger Lockhart, Donna Martell and her son Chris, Judy Weightman, Konstantine of the Urals and other generous strong hands.  The Race Committee was chaired by Nik Froehlich and supported by Greg Hawkins, Andy Binkman & Warren Duncan.  Photographers included Bob Yates, Donna Griggs and Roger Lockhart.  Led by Fleet I Captian John Whitney, trophies were awarded to the following winners:

A Fleet Trophies:

1st Bill Menninger & Crew;  2nd Carl Pomeroy & Crew;  3rd Tom Corkett & Crew

B Fleet Trophies (as Awarded):

1st. Andy & Lori Everson & Crew; 2nd Win & Carlita Fuller & Crew; 3rd George & Phyllis Drayton & Crew

    Walter and I had a great time at the Summer Party! We had hoped we could make it back from Coronado Yacht Club where Walter was Regatta Chairman for the Lido 14 Class Championship Regatta so we could be C Fleet crew but we couldn’t get there before the racing started. Needless to say, we really enjoyed the festivities and spending time with our Harbor 20 friends. It was a really fun event, perfect location, and great food and drinks. I just love all the wonderful photos that were taken by our local paparazzi, Bob Yates!
