In a toughly contested regatta, Charlie Pendleton, sailing with Elise Mazareas and Renee Heffernan, won the 2013 Rhodes 19 National Championships hosted at Southern Yacht Club, New Orleans. Despite a very challenging first day of racing, Charlie, Elise and Renee came back with two incredible performances defeating the defending champions.
Pendleton had previously won the regatta in 2008, while Heffernan won the regatta in 2010.
Doyle One Design has always been active in the Rhodes 19 class, and the event marked the 21st time in the past 27 years that Doyle Sails have won the event. While the results have been consistent, the sails have been continually improved and utilize the very best in modern sailcloth.
