I won't have to say much on this one, the pictures speak for themselves. I tried to count the boats there but it was hard. The general consensus is between 75 and 100. I think this was the most ever. I'm sure there will be lots more pictures on the West Coast Trailer Sailors site soon.

The cookout was great, quick brats instead of slow fish in a restaurant.

The Gougeon boys of West epoxy were there as usual with some more exotic sailing canoes. The only class of boats noticeably absent were the factory built 13 ft melonseeds, I guess they're really just pond sailors. There was one 13 here, a beautiful hand built boat by Nick Jaeger all the way from Paducah, Kt.

Helen and I were lucky enough to get into the Faraway Inn this year. It's pet friendly and always booked up for this weekend.The only way to reserve a room is to book it now a year in advance as you're checking out which I did.
