Heartbreaker

Bob Hughes and his team on his TP 52 Heartbreaker last weekend did a double-bullet performance in winning 1-1 in the HPR Class in the Ugotta Regatta in Little Traverse Bay in Harbor Springs, MI. Another Michigan resident, Bill McKinley and his team on their blue Carkeek HPR 40 Denali^2, were runners-up, scoring 2-2 for the weekend in the competitive five-boat class.

In third place was Mike Schoendorff's water-ballasted Riptide 41 Blue. Also competing were Mark Hauf's TP 52 Imedi and Phil and Sharon O'Neil's TP 52 Natalie J.
