It was a perfect day for The Annual Hoyt O. Perry Independence Regatta in Southport Harbor– sunny, not too hot, and a nice steady breeze throughout the racing. After six races (with one throw-out)  the kids took over and, just then, the breeze dropped to a level more manageable by the younger sailors.
The racing was very competitive with eight boats racing and six boats taking either a first or a second.  (Two boats had equipment issues and retired during the racing.)  The top five scores were amazingly close and almost interchangeable; 13, 14, 15, 16, and 17.  Chris Jennings won closely followed by Glenn Van Deusen and Dave Perry.
