Regatta al Sol - May 14 2008
« on: August 23, 2007, 19:00:51 PM »
I just got word from the Regatta al Sol chairman that Mini's and other shorthanders will be welcome in this years Regatta al Sol.  This is a 550nm race from Pensacola Florida to Isla Mujeres Mexico.  Isla Mujeres was narrowly missed by Hurricane Dean, and word is that they made it through fine, so our Amigos will be ready for us.  Conditions for this race are usually port tack the whole way, starting on a close reach, then broadening to a trade wind run into Isla Mujeres.  I know most of you are making final preparations for the Transat, but if you choose to stay in the western hemisphere after the race, or if you are here already, you'd be most welcome in the Regatta al Sol, and celebrated upon arrival in Mexico.
