Whiskeytown Sailing Regatta 2011

Here’s a 3 minute video I took of Sunday at the Whiskeytown Sailing Club’s Memorial Regatta. That’s their big annual race. This year it drew about 70 boats. Always a beautiful setting for an amazing race.

Whiskeytown Lake is located just west of Redding California.The Regatta always brings back fond memories. Karry and I used to sail our little yellow sailboat in the 1970′s on Whiskeytown. I rummaged around and found a couple images from slide film. Back when my beard wasn’t white, and when getting some sun was good for you. Good times!

    Skip, did you stop because the beard got white or the little yellow sailboat went away? I love Whiskeytown any time of the year!

  2. Great video. That’s me coming into the picture around 2:00. My recap posted here: http://mariner1460.blogspot.com/2011/06/family-class.html
