Scuttlebutt Video of the Week
November 18, 2011

What was one design racing like in the U.S. nearly 50 years ago? This week's video comes from Thistle Class Past President Craig Smith, and is of the 1965 Thistle Class U.S. National Championship that was held in Milford CT on the Long Island Sound. The 1965 National Champion was Peter Bordes in #603. Video trivia is that the boat that won the Nationals in 1965 finished in 5th place in the 2010 Thistle U.S. Nationals.
