Team Point Loma Outfitting won the Etchell’s Florida State Championships this past weekend. The team, Bill Hardesty, Steve Hunt, Mary Ann Ward and Erik Shampain, has now won two of the first three events in the 2008 Jaguar Series! Saturday’s racing was in light and shifty conditions but they prevailed with a third and a first to lead the rregatta at the halfway point. Sunday was quite a bit windier, so they pulled out their SLAM RC gear to stay warm and dry. I would like to think it was the gear, but this talented team took a fourth and a fifth to close the regatta with thirteen points. The second place boat was a distant nineteen points back!
With just one event left in the series Team Point Loma Outfitting holds a narrow lead. The final event is the Jaguar Mid-Winters February 29 throough March 2. We are proud to support these guys and wish them the best for the rest of their campaign!
