Spring Dinghy Regatta

This weekend, St. Francis Yacht Club is hosting its annual Spring Dinghy Regatta.  A number of fleets are participating including 505s, F-18 catamarans, Weka trimarans, Lasers, formula windsurfers, and kiteboards. The weather was beautiful with temperatures in the mid 60s with winds of 10-15 mph. The current was a strong ebb through most of the afternoon.
