Bill Seebold Jr.Seebold started racing at age 11 in the JU class and progressed through the Outboard (Alky) classes, winning his first national title in B Racing Runabout 10 years later.  Since then he added an impressive list of national championships, including three Outboard titles in one day.  Moving into the 7-Litre Inboard class, he won nine of 10 starts.  Then he went to OPC, where he won almost every U.S. marathon, plus many records in enduros and closed course competition.
