4TH OF JULY – INDEPENDENCE DAY – Celebrate yours – go sailing!
As southern Bay racers we sometimes suffer tornados, hurricanes, storm surges, nor’easters,  thunder boomers, hot spells, windless days, and gales.  All of which are cancelled out by one day as glorious as this past Wednesday, when close to 40 boats raced in Hampton Roads and more raced in other groups including those off Little Creek, in the York River, and elsewhere.  All were accompanied by race committees and spectator fleets.  Mid-week casual racing at its most enjoyable.  Get it  while you can!
