2013 Hospitality Regatta, Jackson MS
On October 19 and 20 2013, the Jackson Yacht Club hosted its annual fall regatta, the Hospitality Regatta. In the past, this has been a premier regatta for sailors all classes in the Deep South with several hundred boats participating at its peak including a large Scot fleet. Unfortunately participation has dwindled over the years.
Thanks to the tireless work of regatta chair, Sherrye LaCour, that trend was reversed this year. Our record turnout for recent years featured Flying Scots, J22s, multihull, PHRF spinnaker and cruising fleets. In addition, area Lightening has added Jackson to their traveling circuit.
