Our SIYC 2013 Opti Regatta was a great success on Tuesday.  We had 110 competitors participate from 11 clubs.  The Red and Blue fleet were able to finish a race before the weather presented some challenges preventing the White fleet from finishing.  Thank you to all the parents who supported their children and made alternate parking arrangements to show our guests true island hospitality.  Our racers were generous and helpful to other competitors, helping each other get off the water at the end of the day.

A big thanks to all the volunteers who made the regatta a great success: Finley Shaw, Mary Beran, Andrew McFarland, Margarita Benaceraff, Diana Duque, Lisa Reich, Clora Kelly, Holly Bresnahan, Nancy Sommi, Jenn Celiberti, Stefan Silverman, Wendell and Stephanie Pendleton, Mike Rouzee, Ted McCarthy, Andrew and Heather Wolf, Jim Preston, Biff Endemann, Greg Hodkinson, Ann Winters, Kathleen Tait, Betsy Colby, Courtney Luddecke, Susan Brewer, Pierce Hance, Jody Thompson, Lynn King, Ellen Bogart, Jamie Mills, Diana Lawrence, Elizabeth Bissell, Chip Luddecke and Ron Cyr.
