Winner of the prestigious Allen Douglas Award for Spostmanship was Jim Moyle pictured here with FSSA President Bill Vogler and fellow Fleet 135 member Deb Aronson.  Our wonderful Regatta Chairperson John Pether who worked tielessly to ensure everyone had a great time and no stone was left unturned!

We are all so very proud of Jim Moyle for his willingness to help out a fellow Flying Scot sailing team. After driving many hours from Minnesota to sail in the Midwinters, he drove 3 hours in the opposite direction to pick up a stranded couple and their boat so they, too, could participate in the regatta! Note that Jim felt what he did was no big deal and anyone would have done it!  But we are not so sure that just anyone would have done it and the fact is that HE is the one who did it - what a guy!
