The Jack Rutz Memorial Sunfish Regatta was a success.
The annual Jack Rutz Memorial Sunfish Regatta was held on Saturday, July 23rd in blue skies, dry, warm conditions with wind in the high teens and low 20 mile per hour range all day.
Seven boats competed and sailed five challenging back-to-back races followed by a post race picnic with subs and beverages on the deck. Many thanks to Carl Boller and Bob Haege, as well as the yard staff who ran the races, and thanks to fleet members who handled the other logistics so well.
The regatta is sailed in memory of the late Jack Rutz, long time WBYC Sunfish racer and all-around great guy, and a perpetual trophy at the club records the names of the winners each year.
The final standings with engraved pub glasses were:
1st Place: Jon Williams, Delta Lake Yacht Club
2nd Place: Alan Glos, Willow Bank Yacht Club
3rd Place: George Seary, Quaker Lake Yacht Club (PA)
