Had a great regatta. Weather cooperated, hot but dry, about 25 boats competing. Many spectators watched and asked questions. Everyone looking forward to next years regatta. Precision steering event was challenging. Predicted log event had several very close times within 4 seconds. Winning entra was off by 1 second. 😎
Good fun on Saturday. A bit windy & sticky hot but overall a very pleasurable day. Sunday a total loss due to the rain & cold weather that moved In Sat night. Kids running pusher tugs Saturday for charity had a great time as well.
