Laser Crab Claw Regatta

Regatta gets off to a good start, with Keith Davids, and many SSA sailors working their way at the top of the fleet.

Moderate winds and chop made for challenging upwind conditions into the south/south east. Cool temps and overcast skies chilled many of us; a sign of winter coming down out of the north.

Light air came to the last race, and the fleet ended up drifting and being towed to SSA. Stay updated for more news and upcoming regattas. JRF
