  • King of the Bay News:  Bumbugo ran the best time in August, posting an elapsed time of 1:05:49 with a handicap corrected time of 54:20.  While this is not a top ten all time performance, it just might be a blazing time for August.  Below is a shot of Penny Simone driving her Ericson 32 Bumbugo around the marks.
