What a fantastic weekend! The weather cooperated, and our excellent race committees (headed by Rolf on the upper course and Stephanie on the lower course) did a fantastic job of getting us a lot of great racing. The lower course boats completed 7 races on Saturday and the upper course boats completed 8 races over two days. We had 47 boats and nearly 100 sailors competing overall, which is a fantastic turnout!
Final results have been posted to the Regatta Website and you can see some great photos from Day 2 taken by Lindsay Bach here. I also want to extent a huge thank you to Heather, Melissa, and Lisa-Marie for all of the time and effort that they spent organizing food and beverages (the BBQ was amazing and the drink selection was phenomenal!) and for managing our PRSA merchandise. A lot of folks now have fantastic PRSA bling to sport on the water! Overall I’m very thankful to all of the dozens of people who volunteered to help make this such a fantastic regatta.
The NOR for the PRSA Spring Regatta (May 28-29) has been posted and registration is now open. Visit the regatta website and register by May 20 to take advantage of the early registration discount. Once you’ve registered, help us spread the word about the regatta!
We have partnered with DC Sail once again to organize a spectator cruise aboard the American Spirit on Saturday of the Spring Regatta. Spectator cruise tickets are $20/person (or $25 for a combined cruise and Saturday dinner ticket). Tickets can be purchased via the regatta website. We have also posted complete details on the cruise in the “race documents” area on the regatta website.
What a fantastic turnout for the PRSA Spring Regatta! We had nearly fifty boats and almost 100 sailors out racing over a fantastic Memorial Day weekend. Even though Saturday’s wind conditions were light and spotty we still got in 3 races on the upper course (and more on the lower course), followed by a wonderful BBQ put together by Lee, Lisa-Marie, and Jim. It was great to see so many friends and family members at the post-race BBQ. Our patience on Saturday was rewarded with a nice 8-10 kt southerly breeze on Sunday. After 3 more fantastic races on Sunday we enjoyed another nice BBQ.
