Cancelled Melges 24 Invitational Regatta

OldShoe NewShoe 2018

Started in 1998 as the “No Class” Regatta, this is the Club’s single handed sailing championship. Past Commodore, Bob Abberger, created this race with a few simple rules; no crew, no auto-pilot, one class and one start. The day after Thanksgiving was chosen to get out of obligations to go shopping and with an early start time to spend the whole day on the water. A trophy was needed; however, another silver cup was too much, so an old boat shoe was decided upon. Actually Bob’s old boat shoe, was beautifully mounted on a wooden base by Joe Linton. The documented “Deed of Shoe” (cocktail napkin) was applied to the bottom of the trophy to be forever immortalized.
