Spring 1997 Race

We had a grand time at the April event this year. Marty Hayes' Ginger Lee again won this year and is now the subject of malicious gossip for another year. Sorry, due to the lack of a scanner, pictures of the event are not available at this time.


Fall 1997 Race

Our sailing event (Regatta) held on Sept. 14 went great! Captain Surgent sponsered the event and brought out his new model of a Carolina Sharpie. His Sharpie did well in the races and now joins the active fleet. We had three or four races before lunch with no captain dominating the runs. The customary picnic followed at 12:00 noon with further sailing afterward where the spectators got to try their hands at rounding the bouys.
