The first annual Ray Jarecki Youth Regatta was sailed on the waters of West Sound July 25 and 25 and it was a huge success. Sixty-one sailors from around the Pacific Northwest participated in the two-day regatta hosted by Orcas Island Yacht Club and Sail Orcas. The weather was fantastic for racing, with moderate south winds and overcast skies allowing 56 races to be completed over the weekend. Results can be found at sailorcas.org.
“It was really exciting watching the sailors navigate the race course,” said Sail Orcas president Bob Brunuis.
