2014 WMYA Butterfly Championship
This year's championship was sailed on beautiful White Lake. With the second largest fleet in the regatta, the Butterfly sailors had some serious competition. The current national champ was there, as well as last year's. However, the event winner was Sam Ralston, sailing Brassy from GRYC. Sam is now a two time winner of the WMYA. In second was Noah Woelters from Spring Lake who sailed a great regatta as well. Great regatta guys!

2014 Butterfly Singlehanded Championship
Seldom in sports history does one run off championship after championship, Congrats to Doug Peckover for becoming the first to repeat four years in a row. He was able to beat the streak of Ray Burke Jr three championships in the early seventies. It was a great turnout at the event and a big thanks to Long Lake for hosting a great regatta. The women's champion was Cherrie Catlin who was right in the mix of it all up until the last days races.
Yet Another Cool Butterfly Design To Hit the Water Soon
INLAND 20 version 2.0
One of the new Barnett 1400's that is waiting for summer to come real soon. They are fast and fun and are in production right now. They sail great with one or two people and are easily setup and sailed in no time flat. A great beach, cottage or camp boat.
