Ted Weihe's Retirement & Chesapeake 20s

Posted in: Racing Stories
When I decided to retire, I also wanted to shift my sailing interest back to small boat racing.  My story was picked up by Abigail Trafford, a sailor herself and author of a book entitled My Time: What to do with the rest of your life.  In my case, retirement means returning to small boat racing and promoting the Chesapeake 20 class.  I have been a member of West River Sailing Club since the early 50s as a child, and since the early 70s as a cruiser.  Now, I am back to one design racing.
