Half Pint of Rum

By Chuck Skewes
The Ancient Mariners Sailing Society had its annual Half Pint of Rum Regatta on December 10th. This race of classic wood boats has a great history from its entry fee of a liter of rum to the le mans start. Many great sailors have sailed this race and it is always hotly contested. This year was no exception.
The newly restored K 50 Akamai of Chris Barclay won with John Driscoll in Chimaera in second. Both boats competed with 100% Ullman Sails. The cruising class also saw the Ullman Sails boat at the front with Pilot wining by over 3 minutes.
