Racing Update

By Larry Hurst

On August 17th six boats participated in our second Cruiser Fun Race. We had near perfect sailing conditions with winds NE 8-12, flat water and sunshine. The course was 6.6 nm in the Bay from the coal docks to the bridge. Typical of our fun races, you record your own start and finish times. Thanks to all who helped set the marks.


Pickles were awarded to the first, second, and third place boats as well as the last place boat.

Our next racing is Robby’s Voice Regatta on September 14. Robby’s Voice is an organization focused on promoting awareness and education surrounding drug addiction. We plan to do three races and flags will be awarded. Check out the racing page for more details. Click here —> Racing
