This Saturday and Sunday, May 7 and 8, 2016 the Venice Sailing Squadron is conducting its Annual End of Season Regatta.
If you own a boat, please plan on participating in the regatta and taking a fellow Squadron member or two with you. If you need experienced crew please let us know in advance and we will help you find them.
Remember, that if we have sufficient participation we now break the fleet into two classes, a Class A fleet for the racing fanatics and a Class B non-spinnaker fleet for normal people.
If you do not own a boat we invite you to come to Higel Park on Saturday and/or Sunday and we will endeavor to get you on one of the boats participating in the races.
