2024 Ohio Districts and Buckeye Regatta


Hoover Sailing Club held its annual Buckeye Regatta May 18 and 19, with this regatta also serving as the Ohio District Championship. The event attracted 15 competitors, with 6 travelling to Hoover to participate in this early season event. Wind on Saturday was light, but our PRO and crew were able to get 4 races finished. Sunday morning there was no wind, so the event was declared finished. Bruce and Nathan Kitchen of Cowan Lake edged out Brian and Pamela Pace of Hoover for the Championship. Scot Stephen and Mark Presley of Hoover took 3rd. Thanks to the local Fleet 37 for a great taco bar dinner Saturday night, followed by live live music.  Regatta winner Bruce Kitchen thanked son Nathan for bringing his crew skills onboard and also wife Lynn for providing great coaching and on-shore support. Kudos to HSC for a great event.
