The First Annual Mayor’s Regatta started at 1100 am with seven boats participating. The race was hotly contested as the boats raced around the innovative “W” course. The W shape was to honor the yacht club’s home in Waukegan for the last 92 years. Spitfire was declared the winner of the regatta and received an award directly from Waukegan’s Mayor, Sam Cunningham.
The mayor participated in the race by sailing on Sirocco 3. Unfortunately, some boats forgot to mark their times of finish and could not be scored.
The Mayor’s Regatta has been added to the club’s official schedule and is sure to become one our popular traditions.
