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.
