CONGRATULATIONS to GRIFFIN SISK - Winner of the 2017 WYS Queen of the Bay Race
Griffin sailed the 10-mile course in his Sunfish in testing conditions (heavy winds and high waves) with an elapsed time of 1h54m23s. Adjusting for an 18 minute handicap against the Flying Scots, Griffin's corrected time of 1h36m23s was 10m27s faster than the next boat to finish, a Flying Scot sailed by Hamp Smith, John & Mary Greiner. In total there were 4 Sunfish and 6 Flying Scots racing, supported by a great group of volunteers on the race committee and 4 patrol boats.
