Pictures from the 87th Annual Crescent Sail Yacht Regatta

The 87th Annual Crescent Regatta started out with a nice NW breeze, with 63 boats participating in the large course and 14 in the small boat course. The good breeze clocked, and affected the fleet unfavorably. A number of fleets ran out of the allotted time to finish the course and were retired from the race. Results are posted on the DRYA website.

DN Iceboating North Americans

In January the DN Iceboating racers were scratching their heads wondering about ice conditions with such a mild winter. They ventured far west to find great conditions in Fort Peck Montana. Gold fleet top three finishers were 1st James ‘T’ Thieler, 2nd Ron Sherry and 3rd Chad Atkins.

Check the website to see the fabulous drone footage.

Crescent apparel, water bottles, beverage tumblers, and much more are available for purchase from the online Ships Store.  Items are delivered to the club at no charge.  There is a 2-week lead time.
