Chilly weekend for Cats’ Muddy Waters Regatta

Despite the weather, a good time was had by all

On Saturday when winds kicked up with gusts of 24 mph and races had to be abandoned, but Mike Hill stepped in to offer rides on his J-105. All aboard really appreciated being high and dry rather than being cold and wet on the cats. On Sunday, the weather turned more favorable and two races were held.

What a great weekend!
