Flying Scot North Americans


The largest Flying Scot North American Championship (NAC) in history took place on the 50th anniversary of the design yesterday at Fishing Bay Yacht Club (FBYC) in Deltaville VA. From Sunday through Thursday, 119 Flying Scots competed for continental championship honors in 18 races in the Championship, Challenger, Women and Junior Divisions in the Piankatank River mouth and Chesapeake Bay just off Middlesex County, Virginia. This year's event stood in marked contrast to the disastrous 2006 NAC in Marblehead, Massachusetts, struck by a microburst tornadic storm that damaged or destroyed much of the fleet.Championship Division (59 Boats)1st Jeff Linton/Amy Linton, Tampa FL2nd Kelly Gough/Heidi Gough, Dallas TX3rd Ryan Malmgren/Kris Smith, Madison WI4th Ronald Pletch/Dan Pletch, Sarasota FL5th Hunter Riddle/Suzanne Riddle, Pensacola FL Challenger Division (42 Boats)1st Michael Mittman/Greta Mittman, Dallas TX2nd Tom Clark/Dick Dommell, Chattanoga TN3rd Greg Kamf/Diane Kamf, Linwood MA4th Jack Stewart/Martha Stewart, Alliance OH5th Stewart Cofield/Rob Fowler, Chatsworth GA Junior Division (12 Boats)1st Elliot Lee/Paul Lee, Detroit MI2nd Cori Radtke/Art Radtke, Weems VA3rd Alex Jacob/James Jacob, Alexandria VA Women's Division (8 Boats) 1st Greta Mittman/Heidi Gough, Dallas TX2nd Melanie Dunham/Carrie Carpenter/Carrie Berger, Pawling NY3rd Linda Nicholson/Ginny Mangan, Huntingdon Valley PAFor full results and more information, please visit:
