In difficult conditions Brent Barbehenn won the combined LIS/NJ Districts last weekend. The regatta was hosted at Lake Hopatcong Yacht Club in New Jersey and 38 thistles came to compete. Of the 38 boats 14 came from the Long Island Sound District and 16 were from the New Jersey District. There were 8 boats from outside either district from as far as Annapolis and Rochester.

Thank you everyone who helped put on this great event!
