Keelboat Racing: 14-May!

Come out for the second race of the year, and the first of two for May. This is a special 'keelboat' only race, and ONLY monohulls of at least 19' in length, using either a fixed keel, swing keel, centerboard, or daggerboard are welcome to take part in the races.

This promises to be a fun event, and there will surely be some excitement at the start line. Let's show those catamaran folks how it's done.

First race starts at 3PM, and we hope to see you there. We will have our customary pot-luck after the races, so come and join us on Saturday, 14-May!
