Queen City Awarded At AHMEN


Home » Node » 242


The annual awards banquet for the AHMEN racing series was held at National Yacht Club on the evening of February 1st, and Queen City members walked away with a lot of yellow flags from the 2012 season.  AHMEN is an inter-club organization that runs a half-dozen or so offshore type races every year in the late summer and early fall.  It's a lot of fun to get out of the harbour and sail some long legs for a change, and there really is no reason not to race: the entry fee is "Free".

In the 2012 season, QCYC's Frank Bushe (Fine Wine) and crew won first overall for the series in the White Sail 2 fleet.  John McLeod (Zig Zag) and his crew picked up third overall in that same fleet.  Also winning flags (they are awarded on a race-by-race basis) were One More Time, Panache, Veloce and Amelie.
