October Victoria Regatta
Today we held the October Victoria regatta. We had very pleasant weather with temps in the 60s and mostly sunny skies. Nine skippers came out to enjoy the sailing, weather, and camaraderie. We completed 12 races. (At the lake, I thought we had finished 14 races, but I discovered we accidentally skipped over races 7 and 8 on the electronic tablet so we really only had 12 races.).
