Buccs and Jets

 

 

The Easter Buccy Regatta is a different kind of regatta.  With 6 Buccaneers racing in the varying conditions around the cove under incoming jets anything is to be expected.

Not the least different of sorts is the on the water Easter egg hunt race.  The race committee had stashed Easter eggs around the racecourse and sailors were to approach them from any direction to pick Easter eggs out of the buckets for bonus points in the regatta.

This year’s Easter Buccy regatta was won by Jeff Neurauter and his crew Carrie Quinn, who as usual were extremely fast in every direction.

Annabelle Yurko (far left) got to race in her first Buccaneer races at Easter Buccy.  She hasn’t reached 3 years old yet, but has reached her first on the water Easter egg hunt.  Convincing her that all boats don’t have Easter eggs may be a challenge from now on…

The wind strength was up and down throughout the day, causing crews to shed layers, and in this case…crew!  Jimmy, light of crew pulls ahead of Aurora and Kick-Em-Jenny during a light spell.  The reflections are cool to see though.
