  • Lois Sails Again!




    Lois Lane made her 1st sailing event in quite some time last week,
    entering in the RYC's Wednesday Night Beer Can regatta. Owner Tony Carr has spent the past 5 years putting in a bundle of time and money rehabbing the 1977 Wylie 40'
    cold moulded IOR speedster, which, without his effort, would most certainly have ended up in a landfill.



    Still a work in progress, Tony was happy as could be to finally get her rig installed earlier this summer, and acquired a couple sails that are "close to fitting".



    Even with the less than optimum sails, and dirty bottom, (diver didn't quite show up on time) the old girl showed some of here old pedigree, accelerating nicely
    in puffs and tracking nicely in the mellow conditions off the Richmond Riviera. Tony's shoe string budget translates into biting off major purchases in bits and pieces.
    His goal of getting in at least one beer can race in 2017 met, Tony was overjoyed to finally be on the starting line, and proud as a peacock with all the love displayed
    form those aware of Lois's colorful past and place in Bay Area sailing history.



    Tonys grand plans is to sail her short handed inshore and offshore when time and money allows. The spartan interior still has a lot of work ahead, and he lacks instrumentation,
    kites and would probably accept donations in that arena.
