June 20-24, Bradford, PA. Pictured above Tyler (Barham), Bob (Warspite), Mike (NC), Zach (Invincible) are the Port Polar Bear captains that made the trip to Nats this year, all in Allied boats. Essentially the Allies were flooring the Axis in a way that was not fun. As such on Tuesday Tyler and Bob (as well as Tom in his QE) were flipped to the Axis team. The battle was much closer at that point but the Axis managed to win on paper. However as this did require the trade of 3 of the more experienced battlers, I’d say the Allies really won. Notable awards: Von Fleugal – Tyler, Best of Class 5 – Tyler, Allied High Spirit Award – Mike.

May 28,29,30. We did 6 sorties on Saturday and Sunday and 3 sorties on Monday. It was a total blood bath:.Bob took more below the water line holes than he did at the Brouhaha in the same ship. Multiple experienced captains made for some very streamlined battling. On Saturday we had 6 sorties done between 9:30 and 4. Pictured above: Back row: Mark (Nagato), Paul (Honolulu), Peter (Kaiser), Bob (Warspite), Andy (Barham), Kas (Invincible), Jason (HSM incomplete), Tom (QE), Front row: Paul’s son, Rick (Jamaica), Zach (Invincible), Mike (NC), Camera man not pictured – Tyler (Nagato).
