The Corpus Christi Navy regatta #55

August 7, 2017

NavyRegatta55aThe 55th annual Navy regatta is done. The downhill day boasted Corpus Christi’s famous breezes. One boat blew out their first spinnaker. Another, a lively race design, decided not to fly theirs with a novice helmsman. Our Navy helmsman, Captain Dave, did an admirable job sledding the boat, hitting 13 knots at one point, finishing us 4th. And if there were a couple of close calls, well… that’s sailing. Three dolphins joined us for the last spinnaker run, whistling their advice.

The photo shows a few of the boats in the Naval Air Station anchorage Saturday afternoon, their crews lolling in the water. Thanks are due to the US military, the Corpus Christi Yacht Club, and the Bay Yacht Club for sponsoring this annual festivity!
