Bill Moore Regatta - Results and Recap
Gresham Wins Gold, Kirby Silver
The first fleet race of the year is in the record books. Fifteen Lidos showed for the Bill Moore Memorial Regatta and Burger Bash. John Gresham and Chris May bested the 8 boat A fleet while Melissa Kirby and Michael Oliver won the Bs. The light and shifty breeze kept PRO Martyn Bookwalter and his race committee busy adjusting separate race courses for the Lidos and Sr. Sabots. A total of four races were completed before everyone was back at the docks putting down burgers. Bill Moore’s wife Nancy and daughter Kaylee attended the BBQ and awards.
We would like to welcome some new members to the fleet. Tony Beltran and his wife Brenda are the new owner’s of Bill Moore’s boat, Lido 5011, so it was very special to have them out on he water for this race. While not new to the Lido fleet, this was Melisa Kirby’s first one design race in her new Lido and also Mary Kullenberg’s first race in her new Lido. Thanks to everyone for a great turnout - looking forward to Midwinters!
Special thanks go to the Race Committee team, Tracy for his photography and to Kathy for transferring the scores.
