John Porter’s Full Throttle Edges Past John Galley’s Silverhawk

The NCASA and the Lake Geneva Yacht Club put on a spectacular A scow championship. 22 A scows invaded the LGYC for this seasons Summer Sprints Regatta. Five races over three days enticed all the A boats and hundreds of spectators.

Regatta Chairs John Anderson, John Porter and Chuck Lamphere put on quite a show for the fleet on and off the water. Perfect race management and fabulous parties made this championship fun for all the A scow participants. As for the racing, it was competitive, close and challenging.

At the end of the event we saw John Porter and his Full Throttle crew squeak out another A scow championship. Starting the regatta with a 9,4 many thought the FT team was vulnerable. Like true winners though, they strung a series of bullets together, winning the final three championship races. This placed them in a tie with John Galley’s Silverhawk Team. With the race wins though, Porter won the tiebreaker and remained the #1 A scow team in the country.

Going into the final race with winds in the 22knot range we saw 4 boats close to the championship crown. Galley, Porter, Buddy Melges and Coleman Norris. John Porter then went on to win the final race and the championship because Galley could only get back to 2nd place in thef final heat.

The rides downwind were incredible. These A scows were going over 25knots downwind!

The 2005 National Championship is on Green Lake, Wisconsin – August 12-14. The NCASA expects over 25 boats for this championship!
