Thank you to Cape Cod Sail & Power Squadron for their participation and support. SPRAY was our official committee boat. Captain Ed Ruckle, aboard SPRAY, cruised along with Past Commander Michael Leyden setting the 200 yard course. Captain Ruckle, along with Hal Petersen provided search & rescue for those unfortunate souls who’s vessels sank. Mary Lou Walsh greeted boat crews at the check in table and assisted the LeydenTeam at awards presentation. Charles and Gail Burke were the official photographers, and provided over 500 shots of the race, grudge match, and awards ceremony! Lee Johnson did a fantastic job as Dock Master, getting the boats in the water, ensuring not too many people were on the dock, and assisting boat crews debarking their vessels.
