Tall Cactus Regatta – April 28, 2012

The Tall Cactus Regatta will be run this coming Super Sunny Saturday with high temps around 90 degrees with the rum punch hovering around 40 degrees.

This will be a sprint course compared to the marathons the last few years. The idea is to sail the course hard, then drop the hook—or tie up on someone and enjoy the great weather and a wee bit of competition onshore between fleets, Clubs, and/or individual boats.  Some random prizes will be awarded for the victors.

This is no Hunger Games.  Pull up a chair and feast on steak, chicken, salmon patties, salads, corn on the cob, beans, deserts, and cold drinks, but only if you’ve ordered in advance or if we happen to have some leftovers.
