Rob Evans Is 2008 A Scow I.L.Y.A One Design Champion!
25 August 2008
As published by Scowlines - Consistent sailing produced a winner. Rob Evans, sailing M-1, never won a race but also has no race worse than 6th in the six-race series. His ability to come back through the fleet with a change in wind condition is impressive. With this win he takes home not only the championship trophy but also the Perrigo Trophy presented for the boat with the best combined Nationals and I.L.Y.A. performance. Evans bested Full Throttle, I-49, driven by John Porter who won Sunday's race number two. Pat Hughes won back to back races 4-5 to take the first race on Sunday. The top five were M-1 Rob Evans, I-49 John Porter, M-8 David Chute, I-28 Terry Blanchard/Andy Burdick, M-21 Pat Hughes. The entire Evans family was in attendance and assembled to celebrate the victory. Mom and Dad Evans along with wife and daughter, a few brothers thrown in for extra measure (or skill). The champs trophy records names back to 1898 - a long history for this proud organization.
