A huge welcome back to #95 ROGUE (formerly Le Flying Fish, formerly Keeli Quinn, formerly Gale Force)!  Jeff Duvall of Portland, Oregon has re-purchased #95 and brought her up to Oregon for a winter refit.  Hope to see Rogue out sailing in 2013!

Honey Badger #13 for Sale

October 23rd, 2012

#13

Honey Badger, #13 is for sale in Victoria. This is one of the highly sought after early ’stringer’ boats.

Some info from current owner Fraser (who is planning on picking up another Moore):

I  am asking $9000 OBO. It has a new Tape Drive #3 used once. A spin built in January. Both designed by Americas cup sail designer. New Harken radial winches. 2011 2.5 hp Yamaha 4 stroke outboard. Many new Harken blocks. Many new lines. No Trailer. I am selling because I have my eye on a newer Moore with a trailer. Still loving the boat.

Congratulations to More Uff Da, #26, for reclaiming the NW Fleet Championship trophy at this past weekend’s PSSCs!

Fun and challenging sailing on Saturday as the first cold fronts of the year rolled through, along with a race committee determined to give everyone their money’s worth by banging out 7 races. The evening’s joint SC27 and Moore 24 after party was full of war stories of carnage on the race course, helped along by a Keg of Fremont Pale Ale provided by the Moore fleet.

Sunday the battle was between Uff Da and last year’s winner’s More Cowbell for the top spot. But, after a total of 11 races, Uff Da emerged the new champ. A great way for the Braden’s to return to the NW, we are all looking forward to seeing Uff Da out on the course again next year!

Such a fun weekend of competitive sailing, seeing old friends, making new friends, and enjoying some of the best boats ever built. Special thanks are deserved by Doug Archbald and crew on Morjito, #111, for making the drive up from Hood River, as well as Bill Blodgett from More Cowbell, #124, who was instrumental in organizing the regatta. Thanks!
