11 boats in 2 fleets sailed in the Legacy of Sail Regatta on Sunday.  These sailors of a certain vintage sailing both new and old boats got to sail 4 races in a 7-10 knot north east breeze.  Looking to raise the profile of this event, a new perpetual award presented by Paul Almany was awarded to the top competitor in the largest fleet.  This years winner was John Wake.

Jere's Legacy Regatta was a wonderful event! There was excellent race course management by the race committee under trying conditions of shifty winds.  There were three races and nineteen boats started the first race.  The Regatta consisted of three boat divisions;  Flying Scots (8), Typhoons (3), Portsmouth Class (8).  The weather was perfect for this type of fun racing - and - no protests.
