RUMBLE Takes SBRW BLACK SEAL CUP! Ben Weeks and Michele Cochran of Yorktown, Virginia, stormed Southern Bay Race Week in their J29, RUMBLE. Sailing in the highly competitive PHRF B-1 fleet with a crew of friends from Yorktown, Seaford, and Hampton, the long time J29 racers put together a string of 6 bullets in 7 races over three days of varying conditions. Rumble turned in a string over 3 days of racing of 1-1-1-1-1-1-2. Five other boats along with Rumble had outstanding performances during the regatta that earned them BOAT OF THE DAY awards.

They do more than Fife and Drum in the historic area! Racers from the Yorktown area put the grab on the B fleets at SBRW 2010. Mike Austin’s Moving On took home top honors in B-2 and, of course, Rumble dominated B-1. PHRF B-2 – Mike Austin, Moving On (Beneteau F8), 1-1-2-2-1-3-1
