Another Successful North Americans!

Congratulations to 2011 M-Scow North American Champ -- John Applegate!
17 boats competed in the 2011 Championship, held July 30-31 at Pigeon Lake Yacht Club in Ontario, Canada. Winds on both days were light and variable which made the sailing challenging and even sometimes frustrating. 4 boats from NJ and one boat from another lake in Ontario travelled to compete. The dinner Saturday night (roast beef, chicken, vegetables, salads and of course dessert) was excellent, as was the local band who played for everyone's enjoyment.

Local TV station CHEX sent a reporter who interviewed several sailors and captured video of some great scow sailing. Below is the link to the segment. Thanks Joe Bowland & Curt Morton for the interviews.

A special thanks goes out to Joe Bowland and Mike Burton-Davies for organizing a truely outstanding event, and to all the PLYC members who contributed and helped.
