Beaufort hosts national sailing championship

The MC Scow Masters Championship will be held at the Beaufort Yacht and Sailing Club on October 12-15.   The sailing event will be held in front of the club on Lady’s Island, between the McTeer Bridge and the marsh in front of downtown, or off the Sands in Port Royal, depending on wind conditions.
The MC Scow is a single handed, single sail 16’ boat with a flattish bottom and is a powerful, fun boat to sail.  The Masters Championship is for sailors over the age of 50 and there will be sub classes for those in their 50s,  60s, 70s and 80s. Yes, 80 years of age.  We have two sailors registered in this Old Salt category, one of whom is from Beaufort, Guy McSweeney. There are seven sailors registered in the 70s age group, several from Beaufort.
Of the 35 sailors pre-registered, half are from Michigan, Wisconsin, Ohio, N.Y. and Texas, and six will be sailing from Beaufort.
