HOSPICE NATIONAL REGATTA HELD IN ST. PETERSBURG FL
St Petersburg Yacht Club, St. Pete FL, site of 2013 National Hospice April 11 to 14th
Upper Chesapeake Hospice Regatta representative team from Havre de Grace Yacht Club, sailing one design Ideal 18
Crew members Al Caffo and David Thompson prepare for the first day of racing; Tim Winger and Betty Caffo round out the crew.
Ideal 18 sails with a three person crew. It proved to be a wet boat with winds over 16 knots. The bow submerged and stayed down until both the chute and main were doused. Not good for fast sailing.
The Sonar fleet is also used for racing, with a crew of four. Saturday is great sailing!
