February 15, 2004

Nine yachts braved the wet and windy waters of Majuro lagoon on Sunday afternoon to take part in the Mieco Beach Yacht Club race.
 
The day started out with absolutely no wind and ended with blustery conditions that blew out two sails and sank at least one dinghy.

Line honors went to the speedy yacht Roxanne, but the big winner on corrected time was Joe and Kay McCarthy’s yacht Navi-Gator. Second place went to the yacht Windrunner and third to Seal.

Following the race, Commodore Dee Johnson hosted a boisterous awards ceremony at the Outrigger’s Jakaro Bar with the yacht Queen Jane, skippered by Jordan Bigel, taking out the treasured free night at the resort, and Windrunner the 55 gallons of diesel donated by MEC. Other sponsors included Budweiser, EZ Price, and MIVA.

The yacht club is now coming of age, with over 40 members and more people eager to crew on the yachts.

New members that have signed up recently include MEC head honcho Billy Roberts, WorldTeach’s Pat Lane, and Majuro Hospital’s Judy Sleath.

The next big event for the yacht club will be the coordinating of the yacht division in the Seventh Annual Coconut Cup Regatta, which is being held on Saturday, March 27.
