Fun at Everglades Rec Center
Our temporary home was Everglades Rec Center while Ashland Pond was drained for repairs.
Many thanks to officials at Everglades and other boating clubs for allowing us to sail.
At Everglades we had many visitors, including a friendly and inquisitive alligator (currently named "Smiley").
Now we are back at Ashland Pond.

Bruce Farr a DF65 and DF95 sailor in The Villages had an enviable record racing sailboats but is best known as an innovative naval architect. He was the naval architect for seven America’s Cup campaigns. His firm was responsible for hundreds of designs that were frequently breakthroughs in yachting and influenced the direction of naval architecture worldwide. Farr was a gifted sailor who studied how to make boats sail fast. He spent his career at the leading edge of the sport.
Locally, Bruce is an active sailor at The Villages Model Yacht Squadron on Ashland Pond where he selflessly helps all sailors with their radio-controlled boats.
