Chris Parker, Jeff Grange and Mike Kuhney top Viper fleet in Santa Barbara

 Santa Barbara Skiff Festival
Santa Barbara Yacht Club
May 14-15

Host club’s Chris Parker with event chair Jeff Grange and Mike Kuhney winning three of five races followed in second by Viper Governor and Alamitos Bay YC member Tim Carter sailing with Jennifer Weisman and Steve Blowmeke while Arizona YC and Viper Treasurer Tony Chapman, sailing with Luce Sushali and Paul Wojtczak finished third. Timbo started strong, winning the first two heats, but Chris Parker’s winning the three final ones made the difference.

Interestingly, after the first day the tables were turned with Timbo recording two bullets making it seem easy. Guess that woke-up Jeff and his crew. Note to self: sometimes it’s best to let sleeping giants lie!
