Regatta - August 6-7, 2005
and her crew had great fun at the Sabre regatta in
Marblehead, hosted by the Corinthian Yacht Club.
The Club was spectacular: members, officers, staff and
race committee were terrific, and we thank them!
We had good fun catching up with Sabre staff on hand,
and even recruited ace crewmember Amanda Montgomery to
help ESMERALDE take third place in the Sabre World Cup
on Sunday! Some 40-45 Sabres and Sabrelines
participated. Below are a couple of photos of the
team members Tucker Thompson, Amanda Montgomery and Glen
Chaplin wind down after a fun day
on the water.
Amanda & Bruce head ashore on the launch, still not
knowing if ESMERALDE had won a prize.
World Cup winners receive their trophy. Below,
ATLANTEA, the yacht that won it all...!
Wilcox & his wife wait anxiously for the results.
Below, IT'S ALL ABOUT ME sizes up the competition in the
pre-start. Bump drove her to first across the
line, and second on corrected time.

thanks to Lynne and everyone at Sabre who made this such
a fun weekend, and to the rest of the gang at Sabre who
put together such a fine boat for us! And thanks
also to the folks at the Corinthian Yacht Club who
opened their club to us, and provided warm hospitality
all weekend long.
