I can’t say enough about the hospitality provided by all the members of the Wawasee Yacht Club. This regatta is consistently one of the most enjoyable of the summer.

Friday evening is the welcoming party after most have set up their boats. A few who had to work on Friday drift in later in the evening. Within walking distance is the Sleepy Owl bar/restaurant where many of the boats ended their day to catch-up with old friends and tales of winter vacations.

The T-73 Bonnani Teams wins Toms River Tuneup

Sixteen teams attended the Toms River Yacht Club Tune Up Regatta on June 6, 2015 to kick off the start of E scow racing on Barnegat Bay. The fleet sailed four races in a building north-easterly on the Seaside course. PRO Chip Hillyer alternated between two and three lap races, each taking approximately 40-50 minutes each. Even with the long courses, the fleet was very compressed at the top mark, which made for some tight (and loud!) first windward mark roundings.
