Dean Grimes wrote - I want to thank you all for coming to the GWBR! this was one kick-ass weekend, for sure! It started with an awesome sailing clinic by Jeff Linton., (who else!), sponsored by LESC, on Friday. Saturday, there were 41 Flying Scots on the starting line!! From what I have been told, this is an all time high for a Florida District regatta! A record! To add to that, there were 96 boats sailing on two courses in this regatta, making it one of the highest attended regattas at Lake Eustis, EVER! Believe me, we were pushing the limits! Everyone seemed to have a great time, and everyone came home safely. (phew!)
