Lake Keowee and HMS Bounty Sinking

Last weekend I raced in the Turkey Shoot Regatta at Lake Keowee near Clemson, SC on a J22 with Terry Keane.  He had invited John Rumsey to sail with us.  John was a previous captain of the HMS Bounty that sank during Sandy.

Here is a link to an interview with him.  John grew up in San Francisco racing Stars, worked for North Sails, does long ocean races, and delivers yachts.  Quite an interesting sailor to talk to..

Also, Bill Murdoch sent me a link to an interview with Paul Del Rio.  Paul was a previous commodore of WLSC and now lives on the coast of NC.
