2017 Great 48 Had a Bit of Excitement - Even Scuttlebutt Noticed!

There were 38 Scots registered for the 43rd Great 48 at Lake Norman Yacht Club in Mooresville, NC .  A full story and pictures are coming soon, but for now, enjoy these videos.  The capsize even made Scuttlebutt with the caption "Paul Simon says there are 50 ways to leave your lover but we found a Flying Scot skipper who came up with another way".  Full results are here.

So we were filming at the Flying Scot Great 48 Regatta and just happened to have a camera pointed at Bruce Kitchen as he fell out of the boat, causing it to capsize. Thanks to Bruce and Lynn for being such great sports and having such a great attitude so that we can learn and share a good laugh with them. Boat footage by Angie Hunt, who drove from Illinois to volunteer and help us with our promotional project. Click on the picture to enjoy the video,
