2013 Hospitality Regatta in Jackson, MS

2013 Hospitality Regatta, Jackson MS

On October 19 and 20 2013, the Jackson Yacht Club hosted its annual fall regatta, the Hospitality Regatta.  In the past, this has been a premier regatta for sailors all classes in the Deep South with several hundred boats participating at its peak including a large Scot fleet.  Unfortunately participation has dwindled over the years.

Thanks to the tireless work of regatta chair, Sherrye LaCour, that trend was reversed this year.  Our record turnout for recent years featured Flying Scots, J22s, multihull, PHRF spinnaker and cruising fleets.  In addition, area Lightening has added Jackson to their traveling circuit.

2013 QYC

From Diane Kampf - Greg and I had the pleasure of participating in the 6th Annual Flying Scot Chaos Cup regatta at Quannapowitt Yacht Club in Wakefield, MA, on Saturday, October 19.  the Chaos Cup has a long history at QYC, but most recently has become a Flying Scot regatta. QYC has a long history as well, being the oldest inland Yacht Club in the country having been founded in 1884! 

2013 Sail for the Grail, Moraine Sailing Club, Portersville, PA

2013 Sail for the Grail 1

It would seem the grail of Fleet 80's Sail for the Grail Regatta hosted by Moraine Sailing Club on Saturday Sept. 21st would overflow from the persistent rain that fell that day, but not the case. The good spirits of those on 6 MSC boats and 11 from out of town displaced that rain and filled the grail with fun, competition, and camaraderie. Every person on a Flying Scot and on the Race Committee should commend themselves for stepping out of their comfort zone and facing the elements as the schedule was maintained and three races completed. The wind for the first race was lighter than expected and shifty, and the fleet got spread out. But the wind picked up for the next two races and the racing got tighter with the fleet crossing the finish well grouped together. Don't let the results fool you, everyone was very competitive. After putting the boats away and getting dried off, we enjoyed a delicious catered dinner at the Red Rock Falls Restaurant in Slippery Rock, PA. I heard a few found their way to the excellent North Country Brewery also located in Slippery Rock.
