Congratulations to two Lakewood teams for outstanding performances throughout the 2021-22 Southern Ocean Racing Conference season. Chris and Karen Lewis on Kenai took 1st for the Series, and Al Goethe on Hamburg II placed 3rd overall giving Lakewood Yacht Club 2 podium finishes.
The SORC Series consists of five challenging offshore races along the Florida coast and Bahamian Islands. The perpetual trophy is one from sailing legends with names including Dennis Conner and Ted Turner. Kenai, which won the previous years' series as well, is the first yacht to appear twice.
The final race in the series finished March 20 at Lauderdale Yacht Club. Well done Kenai and Hamburg II from all of LYC, and thank you for representing our Club!
