There wasn’t enough breeze for the 505ers to really get out on the wire today, so the PhotoBoat coverage was brief. The forecast calls for increasing breeze throughout this three-day regatta with around 45 boats. Still, the A Cats can look fast in any breeze.

Having been to more Yacht Clubs than we can remember in the last few years, Allen and I find the venue for this event in St. Petersburg refreshing. The sailors are launching from East Beach in Ft. DeSoto on the Southern tip of the peninsula that makes up Tampa Bay. Ft. DeSoto National Park is one of our favorite spots around here and in anticipation of light breeze, we brought our bikes with us today.
