I saw this post this morning and it occurred to me how many Happy Birthday balloons I have seen out at sea. There is a movement among race organizers to create “green” regattas, which is a step in the right direction. If we all have consideration for what we throw over board it certainly can’t hurt. Nothing ruins a good picture faster that a floating water bottle. Be personally responsible, get involved Sailors for the Sea, and spread the word. Enjoy the video courtesy of the VOR.
On May 25th we hosted the first annual Annapolis Junior Keelboat Regatta held at the Annapolis Spring Boat Show. Five teams from local high schools; South River, Broadneck, St. Mary’s, Spalding, and Severna Park, competed in 7 races with light and shifty breeze. At the end of the day South River edged out Broadneck for the victory. Team pictured here with J World head coach Dave Manheimer.
