Alumni Regatta

The Alumni Regatta held yesterday, October 25, was a success. We had 8 alum come back to sail on a perfect baseline day, complete with light and shifty winds. First place went to Scott Pfeffer and Maria Falcone, second to Christina Cattey and Dave Altshuler, and third to Thomas Martin and Christina Baker. Also participating were Ben Seppala, Pat Burke, and Dom Piro. Thank you to everyone who attended and helped out, especially the University of Michigan Sailing Club!
