Croakerfest Regatta Goes on
Sunfish and FJs, Lasers and a Vanguard
July 5, 2020

t’s easier to keep your distance on the water, so in spite the cancellation of the 2020 Croaker Festival, the Croakerfest Regatta was able to carry on. Nearly 30 sailors participated in the event Saturday July 4 – as racers and as part of the regatta staff.

During the regatta, the small sailboats leave Bow to Stern Boating and pass under Oriental Bridge to reach the course.

Limited to smaller vessels, participants sailed FJs, 420s, Lasers, Sunfish, and one couple brought a Vanguard. Sea Bags, large tote bags crafted from recycled sails, were given to the first place winner in each category.
