Ware River Governor’s Cup

Ware River Microburst

This is a photo of part of the aftermath of a microburst that came through the Ware River Yacht Club site shortly after all of the boats came in for the day on Saturday. These five Buccaneers were tipped while at anchor. About 30 other boats were tipped or thrown from their trailers or dollies. The tent city was nearly leveled by what was estimated to be at least 60-knot gusts for less than 5 minutes. There were no injuries and only minor damage to boats, tents and the club facilities.

    I was holding onto my tent when my boat BCN 3687 (yellow hull, black mast) heeled over in the shallows – what a sight!!
