After last year’s successful regatta FBYC held their 2nd Open House Regatta and No Quarter J/70 was among the 30 boats sailing the 8.5nm course in the Piankatank River. In the spirit of being a fun casual race – I invited a couple co-workers with me who hadn’t sailed much.
We were treated to a gorgeous day with 8-12 knot breezes and mostly sunny skies. As a pursuit race we started near the end and picked off of a few boats on the upwind. Being a novice crew we forwent the spinnaker and lost a few spots and finished mid pack. It was great sailing with Kelley, Dillon & Stephen. Results
Following the race we took No Quarter to the dock and rode out to the raft up in progress with 29 boats forming a circle. It was quite a sight and a lot of fun hopping between boats and catching up with folks. Ned Rennolds had his drone up and caught a few pictures:
