It's time again already! This weekend is Roton Point's annual multihull regatta! A little of something for everyone: All beach cats are invited, along with larger cats and tris (distance racing), and this year we're hosting the Shark Catamaran US National Championship!

The rum will be flowing, the band is tuned up for the dinner and party Saturday night. See you there!

Wow, what a weekend!

Yesterday was excruciatingly light wind , but we pulled off two races.

Today was supposed to have no wind at all (several boats packed up and left after yesterday because the forecast was so bad), but we lucked into a nice southerly!

So, after a short delay ashore (the party last night was awesome, and lots of folks slept in), the wind filled and we launched, setting up right off the jetty. We set a short course inside the lighthouse, and cranked out three more races for everyone except for the Sharks, who got four more today.

After using up the last drop of wind, we got back to shore before 1500, and awards were presented. As usual, we were treated to even more great hospitality by the members, volunteers and staff at Roton Point!

The Sharks had such a great time, that they've already locked in to come back in 2019 for their Nationals again!

Make plans now to attend the 60th anniversary regatta at Roton Point!
