Old Shoe / New Shoe Regatta - November 23

Ever try to single-hand sail your boat? How about single-hand race your boat? If you are really adventurous, you can try single-hand racing your boat with a spinnaker. Started in 1998 as the “No Class” Regatta, this is the club’s single handed sailing championship. Past Commodore, Bob Abberger, created this race with a few simple rules; no crew, no auto-pilot, one class and one start. The day after Thanksgiving was chosen to get out of obligations to go shopping and with an early start time to spend the whole day on the water.
