Falcon is owned by Ed (50 PH Macs) and John Bayer (43 PH Macs) All 4 Bayer children are involved. Mary Allen, the main trimmer, is Ed and John's sister and their other sister, Linda Barnes, is an active participant, though she choses not to race. They dedicate this and all future races to their Father Edwin A. Bayer Jr. who passed away several years ago at the age of 85. Ed was a proud Old Goat who taught his entire family to race and has been an inspiration to all!
Falcon was the 2005, 2006, 2011 & 2012 J-35 North American Champion and has won its J-35/T-35 One Design Class in three Mac Races. Falcon's experienced crew has over 200 Bayview Mac Races between them.
This race will make Ed Bayer a Grand Ram (50th Mac), and mark John Bayer's 43th, Mike Welch's 34rd, Ron Rossio's 32st, and Fred Blackmer's 26th! So 5 of Falcon's 10 crew this year are Old Goat's and another crew, Brian Beaudet, is knocking on the Old Goat door with 23 macs completed.
Falcon is proud to represent the Detroit Yacht Club.
