PRO of the event Jennifer Ross shared, “We had 19 race committee volunteers join us on 4 different VRC member volunteered committee vessels. We had three different race officers run race days this year, including Kathy Parslow and Mike Hughes from WVYC. We had 45 boats register from 6 clubs. (Including 20 boats with a PHRF rating under 100, necessitating a split up into a new Div 0 this year).
