2014 Highlander Piper's Regatta Recap
Posted by on October 19, 2014
Pedram Leilabady recaps a great weekend of sailing at the Piper's Regatta on Lake Norman!
We had 24 boats and over 70 sailors taking part in the 48th annual Pipers regatta at Lake Norman Yacht Club this past weekend.
If you are one of those who joined us, thank you very much for being part of what turned out to be a wonderful weekend of sailing and racing!
Congratulations to Tanner Shultz for placing 1st in the regatta :)
The Shultz boat (1007) also took home the award for the Highest Finishing Family boat ... Congrats once again!
Congrats also to the other top finishing skippers: Busbey, Felger, Shayson and Carey!
Thank you to all the sailors, especially those traveling from distant places to be with us at Pipers, in particular those from Berlin Yacht Club who showed up in highest numbers :)
Kiersten McDonald and her crew form UNC Charlotte Sailing Club (https://www.facebook.com/unccsailing) received the Young Skipper award ... Happy to see young sailors competing in Highlanders regattas :)
A very special thanks to Bill Wiggins of Dieball Sailing for hosting the On-the-Water Clinic (which was a HUGE success!) and Bruce Busbey for leading the Roundtable discussion which led to at least a couple of interesting recommendations to be brought before the Highlander Class.
If you did not make it to Pipers this year, you sure missed out on a lot of fun and excitement! ... Make sure you pencil in Pipers 2015 on your calendar early for next year!
