Local Sails aging Boat to Nood title

St. Petersburg sailor Robby Brown won the highly competitive 15-boat, J/24 fleet and the overall title at last week's National Offshore One-Design Regatta in Tampa Bay. Brown, whose boat USA 799 is 35 years old, earned an invitation to the race series' championship in the British Virgin Islands in November. Other winners included: Martin Kullman, St. Petersburg, Melges 24; Richard Karran, Apollo Beach, Wavelength 24; Grant Dumas, St. Petersburg, PHRF 1 and Raymond Mannix, Largo, PHRF 2. This weekend the Clearwater Yacht Club hosts the Laser Midwinters East Regatta. See the action that takes place through Sunday from Pier 60 in Clearwater Beach.
