Classic Moth: Lunch of Champions

Some of us have read Dennis Connor's "No Excuse to Lose" but, then again, some of us still have a problem dotting the i's and crossing the t's when it comes to implementing Dennis's recipe to win sailboat races. Fricke Martschink, forging his own way to greatness, pauses to refuel during a break in the racing at the Classic Moth Midwinters. Video from Amy Linton. Classic Moth is a modified Skol.

Hmmm, don't want to burst your bubble, Tweezerman, but that's Fricke Martschink in the cockpit of the Skol not Rutledge Young. Rutledge was sailing a Europe at that regatta.

Thanks George. Made the change in the body text though Rutledge will have to be Fricke's "nom de guerre" in the video.

Always had a problem keeping the SC crowd straight though they all seem to ascribe to the "Lunch of Champions".
