Dead Dogs & Tin Whistles 2011

It was a fabulous weekend in Key Largo at the Upper Keys Sailing Club's Dead Dogs & Tin Whistles regatta! Lots of great racing, camaraderie, and just plain fun!

The numbers just don't tell the story that was out on the water! In the Mutineer fleet there were many lead changes and lots of on-water duels. The Bucc fleet was a little more one-sided, as Rick Scarborough definitely was in his groove this weekend!

It was a great party, a great regatta, and thanks to all the sailors who drove from so far away to come play in our back yard! This is the fourth year and it keeps growing! Rick Scarborough,Dave Rowe, Jim Davis and Patrick Hopp got special recognition for attending all four years of the DDTW, and Jimmy Yurko, Tate Beckham, and Fred Madden were also recognized for attending 3 years of the DDTW. Spira won the Captain Morgan trophy and Jerry Thompson and Bob DeRoeck won the Party Flamingo trophy for the Race Around Porjoe Key. The Tate Beckham Cup was awarded to Dave Rowe for his support of the Mutineer Class and consistent sailing.

In a nutshell, in the Buccaneer Fleet Rick Scarborough ran away with the prize with 5 bullets and 3 2nd places for 11 points. Second place was Dave Spira with a borrowed Bucc, with 23 points (4,6,2,1,1,1,4,4). Patrick Hopp on Wasabi made a strong 3rd place with 28 points (3,2,3,5,4,3,3,5).
