Southern Comfort Classic to Open Jet-14 Racing Season

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.

Results will be posted next week – stay tuned!
