Stig Osterberg’s Melges 24 No. 401 heads upwind during CYC’s Puget Sound Sailing Championship Big Boat Weekend held on Puget Sound Oct. 9 and 10. Ten one-design and PHRF fleets participated in the regatta, run on two race courses by Principal Race Officers Charley Rathkopf and Kevin Cunningham. The Melges group, with 16 boats, was the largest fleet in the regatta. In the photo of third-place finisher No. 401 are, from left, Brian Huse, Osterberg, Renee Erickson, and Ren Chandler.
