Mike had a great result in his last race with his F-25A SCOOTER, and writes:
I don’t know if you saw the Swiftsure results, but pretty cool. Jude Stoller on his F-25C took line honors in the Cape Flattery Race (100nm) against mainly F-9s and F-31, with Wayne Gorrie's F-31 Redshift 1st on corrected, and we took the double in the short Juan de Fuca Race (80nm) on Scooter.
The boat as always was incredible whether hanging with the F-31s upwind as well as beating the (3) F-27 and F-28CC to Race Pass (critical to get there before the current changed), or tight reaching with a single reef in 20 knots, doing 12 knots boat speed on the sprint into the mark, leaving Moxie the F-31R from the Midwest behind. The run back from Clallam Bay to the Race Pass was a hoot, all the way on one gybe in a building wind and 2-3 foot chop, 12-15 knots of boat speed, the floats never once stuffing and only minor rear beam slamming. Les who was driving (and used to sell Corsairs and raced an F-28R) was amazed at how well we handled the waves. He felt the ride was superior to the F-28R.
Scooter's recently finished interior looks superb
Mike's F-25 is now up for sale, and at a good price, I must say, for such a well built boat (I saw it many times during construction and have also sailed on it).
