Thanks to all (staff, volunteers, parents, sailors, Mother Nature) who made YSF’s First Annual Fall 420 Regatta a success this past Saturday.
Twenty-two sailors in eleven boats spent the day zipping around the Indian River Lagoon in a series of 8 races. In addition to 12 YSF high schoolers, we welcomed 4 teams form Melbourne Yacht Club and a duo from the US Sailing Center in Jensen Beach.
Sailing Director Mary Morgan organized a team of intrepid YSF volunteers, who did everything from serve breakfast to officiate the races. And our young Opti sailors got a chance to observe close up from the vantage point of YSF’s pontoon boat, piloted by Dan Thomas.
The day-long event culminated in the presentation of awards by our beloved founder Charlie Pope:
- 1st place: Alden Findley & Maria McGuire (YSF)
- 2nd place: Brendan Williams & Sean Onorato (YSF)
- 3rd place: Cody Lanier & Bryan DeJesus Camacho (YSF)
Congratulations to one and all!
