Regatta Report - Registration on Wednesday afternoon offered the out of towners a chance to stretch their legs and check their equipment. Thursday morning the competitors were met by a light rain that, fortunately, ended before the skippers meeting. The rain was followed by shifty and intermittent winds—mostly light. The mark-setting crew was kept busy most of the day. For the first time, I can remember, the battery powering the trolling motor was completely depleted. Despite the challenging conditions, sixteen heats, both long enough and challenging enough for a national level regatta, were posted on the scoresheet at the end of the first day. The event was using a two-heat promotion-relegation system. The constantly changing conditions challenged both the race committee and the competitors.
