In an entirely appropriate action, the Beneteau 36.7 Class awarded average points to Chuck Bayer’s ‘Grizzly’ after Chuck was sent to the hospital with extensive injuries, including a broken pelvis, during the horrible accident we reported on yesterday.  Bayer was leading the class at the time, and he gets the class win thanks to this magnanimous move, though a Tartan 10 was awarded the overall regatta honors in a typically light regatta.

For a small idea of how much emotion is floating around the Detroit scene right now and how the community is pulling together, check out this video of Grizzly’s award, and listen to the applause.  Thanks to Frank Kern for this story.
