Dear Friend of CHARIAD:

Flip Wilson would say “If you got, flaunt it.”

We got the Lilley Award from the Boston Yacht Club last night. Best record by a BYC boat in the PHRF, offshore, racing for the 2016 season. What we actually got was a photo holding the trophy.

BYC Commodore Peter Fein and Race Committee Chair Karen Tenenbaum presented the award at the club annual meeting.

Let’s keep in mind how the season started.

And how the season ended.

Congrats to everyone who made the sailing season so much fun for everyone involved.

My best,


(Millennials with have to look up Flip Wilson and learn a little about what they missed.)
