Ride the Wave Regatta,9.7.19

Last Saturday’s "Ride the Wave Regatta" could have been more appropriately named “Side the Wave Regatta” this year; we had plenty of wave action, with wave heights running about 3' - 4', but they all seemed to be coming from the side.  Such wave action made for plenty of entertaining balance work, and even resulted … Continue reading Ride the Wave Regatta,9.7.19
