Gear Up for the Tall Cactus

The final event of the AYC sailing year is the Tall Cactus Regatta, which will be sailed on Saturday, May 20, at Lake Pleasant. This is a long-distance race that delivers a final fancy belt buckle to the winner. You can register here.

Vice Commodore Victor Felice has put together two all-women teams for the regatta, putting them on his two bright-pink J/24s. Here are the boats and crews: J/24 Tiller and Kites Mermaid Rescue MLT2978: Wendy Larsen, Dianna Andress, Michelle Herridge Bailey, Kristeen Teague. J/24 Tiller and Kites Mermaid Revolution MLT2162: Stacey Loula, Ellen Wesley, Monique Palermo, Susan Pew.

Hard to miss one of Victor Felice’s J/24s when it’s on the lake.
