Rappahannock River Yacht Club

The future of sailing was apparent this past weekend at RRYC when the club hosted the 2016 Junior Sailing Regatta.  Young sailors, large and small, from RRYC, Fishing Bay Yacht Club, Indian Creek Yacht Club, Norfolk, and other clubs participated.  It was amazing to witness the zeal and attention to detail these kids displayed as they rigged and launched their sail boats.  The creek was full of sails as they went out to their respective courses.  These are the kids that will keep sailing alive for the next generation in our clubs.  Volunteers from RRYC fed them hot dogs and chips at the end of the races.  Happy, sunburned faces beamed when receiving their 2016 Junior Regatta tee shirts.  The top three winners of each class received trophies for their achievement.  Many thanks go to Bob and Eve German and all the volunteers and parents for making this event happen.
