The first regatta of the Jet-14 season gets underway this weekend near Asheville, NC.  Weather is forecast to be ideal with sunny skies, temperatures in the mid-upper 60s, and winds in the 5-15 kt range.  Lenny Wells (#1130) will look to defend his title against an expected fleet of 10 boats which includes past champion Tom Grace/Paula Pacheco (#717).

The local ABC affiliate, WLOS, ran a series of segments on the regatta, the local club, and the new youth sailing program.  You’ll find some nice video of last year’s SCC regatta in there.
