November DF65 Regatta Canceled
Today was supposed to be the final DF65 regatta of the 2022 season. Just like the final Victoria regatta, we had to cancel this one. Too much snow and too little heat. Click the following links to view Don's report and the 2022 cumulative score sheet.

November ODOM Regatta
Under sunny but cold skies, we held the final ODOM regatta of the 2022 season today. Temperatures were in the mid-30s when we started and reached all the way to about 45 when we finished. Since there was VERY little wind and the sun was out in full force, it did not feel as cold as the thermometer would indicate. Four skippers arrived to battle it out with the ODOMs one last time this season, and we completed only 8 races. Click the following links to view Don's report and the 2022 cumulative score sheet.
