On Sunday, October 30, three Flying Scots from FBYC and three Scots from RRYC (Rappahannock River Yacht Club) traveled to LOWSC (Lake of The Woods Sailing Club) just west of Fredericksburg, to compete for LOWSC's Fall Invitational Team Racing. FBYC was represented by Noel Clinard &M ike Schmidt, Len & Barbara Guenther, John Hubbard & Debbie Cycotte. All together 9 Scots (3 teams of 3) were involved in a series of races to determine the best team. It was great fun, and involved strategies foreign to typical regatta racing, like doubling back on the race course to block and slow opponents while team mates advanced. Fortunately, no spinnakers were used or things could have gotten hairy quickly! FBYC won the day in light and shifty conditions!
