Fourth of July Regatta in Full Swing

The Fourth of July Regatta got started under beautiful, clear skies this weekend with an impressive turnout of boats from all classes. The competition is intense with a single point separating 1st and 2nd place for the Star boats and Flying Scots, and a four-way tie for first place in the Rhodes 19 class. Wednesday afternoon promises an exciting day of racing to decide the winners of the regatta!

Saturday’s race started out with a light north-northwesterly breeze and was notable for the 180 degree wind shift that occurred in the middle of the race! With many smaller oscillations and holes on the course it was a day that tested the racers’ mettle.

Sunday started out very light with much of the Sandy Bay fleet holed up in the harbor awaiting enough breeze to get out to the race course. The wind gods finally smiled upon the racers and the breeze piped up as a gusty northwesterly that continued to build, reaching 20 mph by the end of the day’s racing!
