Stuart Knockabout Regatta 2017


While the 7th edition of the Stuart Knockabout Regatta hosted a record number of competitors (including 2 boats shipped down from the norther fleet in Hull, MA), racing kicked off to a slow start. The crews from 13 Stuarts faced challenging light air conditions and heavy wakes from passing vessels during Saturday's racing. The decision to wait for the breeze to build paid off and a solid afternoon of races were run before the evenings activities.

In contrast, Sunday's weather did not disappoint as the missing breeze from Saturday showed up with interest. Conditions were nearly ideal as the wind blew freshly from the east, providing for a fast and smooth course.
