double the pleasure babe, triple the fun

This week it’s the Viper 640 North Americans at Houston Yacht Club. Texans believe that two Vipers are better than one, Babe.

Two Melges 32 owners tied for first after the second day. Two leaders are better than one, Babe.

Jason Carroll driving his Viper 640 Argo with crew Chad Corning and Danny Pletsch is tied with Malcolm Geftner’s Celeritas with Willem Van Waay and Victor Diaz Deleon. Both teams are fresh from the Melges 32 worlds where Jason was crowned Champ; the Viper program is a tiny fraction of the cost of a Melges 32 program but it continues to attract some of the best sportboat sailors on the planet as both a great cross trainer for big boat owners and double the pleasure for half the cost for everyday one design sailors. In third,  Jay Gollison with Ched Proctor and Steve Flam are only two points behind the leaders, and they are closely chased by Luke Lawrence in Arethusa, Kevin Taugher in Hot Mess and Brad Boston in Jackpot. It’s a field laden with talent and Anarchists.

Oh and for those Vipers that couldn’t make it to Houston this year, there are another 30+ Vipers registered at the HPDO this weekend! Two Regattas are Better than One, Babe.

Title Credit from a song so old that we can’t even find it online, and huge kudos to the Houston Viper fleet for creating this great cover shot at the HYC parking lot, and to KO Sailing for an incredible Texas Open Pit BBQ!
