Memorail Regatta

The information below was issued from Miami Yacht Clubs Web. We are going the weekend of October 5th, in honor of Marks Dad and will be part of the trophy award ceremony. I'm pretty sure the other siblings are arriving as well along with Marks Mom. Two years before Mark Sr. served as Commodore, Mark Jr. received his VI Pan American games Cartagena Colombia August 1 - 10, 1971 Segundo Puesto metal.


The next MARK ALBURY MEMORIAL REGATTA will be on OCTOBER 4TH and 5TH. The Sailing Instructions might take longer to pull up on your computer, as there are several charts for the courses attached to it. More details to follow.

In 1960, Mark Albury became the 1st skipper to win the Key Largo Perpetual Trophy Shark Class; and in 1974, he served as Commodore. A memorial race to honor him was first held in 1991. The Mark Albury Perpetual Trophy is presented to the first beach catamaran to cross the finish line with the best corrected time in the annual Miami to Key Largo Race.

AAA told me about this when we saw one another last week. He said he would send an email. This is such an honor for your's and Mark's family to be part of. Mark Jr.'s Silver Medal from the Pan American Games continues the tradition. How very special . . .

Thank you Rangermom, My only concern are homework and test assignments for my classes. Would it be considered rude of me to take my school books and study while the race is happening?

RANGER said...

That's a good one. Not sure . . .

One can probably get away with studying at a boat race if occasionally one looks out towards the course in the distance, looks back down to ones lap and jots a number on a piece of notebook paper. Loudly proclaiming, "We're doing quite well, timewise, aren't we mate? Avast. Ahoy! Jolly good!" One's mate might be warned ahead of time.

LOL, that was a great story. Hum...........Which mile marker was that?
