Spook Trophy 2011

October 29, 2011

After the Lake Trophy, would it be possible for the yacht club to get any more festive in time for October holidays?  We had a race the weekend before Halloween and a few sailors got into the mood, helped by the warm weather and clear skies.

This big bad wolf, (known in some circles as “Dark Marley”) kept poking about the club, rigging a Johnson 18, and generally looking sinister.  In 2010 Jim Laws photographed him with green hair, barking at Little Red Riding Hood, who was doing her best to wrangle an asymmetrical spinnaker as the boat roared upwind.

Back to 2011, someone grabbed my camera and took the rest of the shots.

Happy Halloween!
