I know sea sprites are spread out across the country, but for those of us owning boats in New England, racing in the annual Sea Sprite Regatta is always a possibility. Particularly for those sailing on Narragansett Bay in RI. So here is a post from Jon Goff, SSA Race Committee chairman:
Sea Sprite Sailors,
The summer is here and racing in the Millard Series (Bristol YC) has been more competitive than ever!! The top five boats are all within 1.25 points of each other and first place has been shared between 3 boats over 5 races…
