The Portsmouth class was dominated by the MC 16 Scows, John Bates 1st, Jack Kern 2nd and Burt Scott 3rd. Pictures on the Sunfish, Laser and MC Scows page. The other 7 entries were Texas Centerboard Circuit racers, who race 8 regattas across Texas this year.

John Allison took 4th place in his Mutineer 15. He was so far ahead of me most of the time I didn't get one picture of him and his son racing.
