Wolf Trap Regatta Results

Aaron Sutten on

Club News

On Saturday, September 16th the 2023 running of the Wolf Trap regatta nearly could have started with a bang but in actuality, it was a well-played reaching start in a fresh northwesterly breeze leading to a solid spinnaker leg south to the old lighthouse. The keyword for the windward (etc.) return leg was perseverance; Hats off to the B fleet boats that sailed smartly in the backing, clocking, and vanishing winds to best a foul current and finish within the time limit. It’s always a pleasure to watch skippers and crews work their boats from an RC point of view. 
Full race results HERE.
