Kirk and Ian Donaldson, Gary Knapp and Tommy Harken are your 2006 Easter Regatta Winners
14 April 2006
The final day brought big breeze and electric rides on the race course. The Charleston chop kicked up making the racing wet and wild! One of the most impressive victories of the day came from Kirk Donaldson in the Melges 17 class. He and his son Ian won the regatta in fashion as they simply sailed tougher than the competition.
In the E scow class Tom Burton from Minnetonka, MN. had the lead going into the final two races but it was Gary Knapp racing with E scow expert crew Henri Colie winning the championship. Boat handling was king in the final day conditions and the crew on MA-13 showed it off best. Congratulations Gary!
In the MC class Tommy Harken held on to his regatta lead on the final day even though Jeff Annis and Lenny Krawcheck were sailing tough. Tommy not only won the MC Easter Championship but he also ran the regatta which is a major undertaking. Thank you Tommy for a fantastic event. Southern Hospitality at its best!
