Demo Days, Bowlegs Regatta , Fort Walton, FL
« on: June 14, 2015, 07:01:26 AM »
Though not quite a demo weekend in Fort Walton, Florida.  Three Vipers are sailing in Fort Walton Yacht Club's Billy Bowlegs Regatta.  12 PHRF spin boats are raing shour .65 mile legs twice around this weekend.  Boats range from a J22, Merit 25, Ultimate, 20, Vipers, J27, Frers 33, Tripp 26, J90.  In one of the races a J90 and Viper got into a gybing duel going into the bottom mark, with the Viper coming out ahead at the bottom turn.  As of Saturday a borrowed Rondar Demo Viper is on top of the leaderboard in the 12 boat mixed fleet.  Racing continues today, Sunday.........

Meanwhile in Fort Walton...

A borrowed Rondar Boats Viper 640 sailed by a team from Saint Andrews Bay YC, Panama City, Florida,  ended up taking the Bowlegs Regatta in Fort Walton, PHRF.  5 Races, all W/L twice around, ranging from Tripp 26's, J27, J90, J22, U-20, two other Viper 640's, Frers 33, Santana 30/30GP, and a Merit 25 in spin fleet.  This was a practice race leading up to the GYA Challenge Cup at Gulfport Yacht Club, Mississippi next weekend. 

Nice seabreeze all weekend long.  At times the three Vipers were neck and neck around the race course.  Comments by the team that borrowed the boat:

"Fun boat, I love it"
"For sure the only choice the GYA can make"
"I can't wait for the GYA to pick this boat, not only will I get back into Capedevielle, but I can take this to other clubs for OD stuff and PHRF stuff too"
" I want one, I want my friends to have one"
