Race Recap: September 12,2015
This year’s 56th Skipjack Race was unique in several ways. We had 13 Skipjacks competing for most of the race.
We even had one “new” skipjack in the race. The Fortune had all the dimensions of a traditional skipjack, and was rerigged in full skipjack fashion, qualifying it to the DNR as a skipjack eligible to oyster under license 95 as a skipjack. After Captain Scott Todd visited the Lions, and talked with us, we accepted the boat as a replica skipjack, like the Nathan of Dorchester, and allowed it in the race. Unfortunately they pulled out of the race with the others due to the lack of wind.
UPDATE: September 11,2015 Thank you to the Sponsors, Volunteers, and Visitors of the 56th annual Skipjack Race and Festival.
In the races, first place went to the Virginia W, second the Fannie Daugherty, third was the City of Crisfield. The Helen Virginia came in fourth. Read the whole story on WBOC…
