2019 fun regatta Recap
Thanks to everyone who participated in this year’s Fun Regatta! It was wonderful to have Camp Lincoln sailors join us as well! The wind played it’s usual regatta tricks but we were able to get two races in and, the weather for dining on the deck was a ten! This year’s event was a true team effort to pull together. Thanks to the hands of many it was light work and a lot of laughs!
Our top 420 racers were Brainerd High School Sailing Team members and Sailing School Instructors, Jackson Medeck and Ethan Stohr! Great job!
Thank you also also to Doug Arndt and Peter Sullivan, (Waterfront Director, Josh Sullivan’s father) who traveled north to judge the event.
