This was the year of Covid. The fleet held a closed to public in house one day regatta followed by a waterfront cookout. The event was the season wrap up replacing  the awards banquet, fall party and probably the Christmas holiday party. The regatta, the picnic and even the season awards were all done by fleet people

 In addition to the nine competitors the fleet was able to staff a signal boat and two markset boats with experienced captains. The objective was to provide a large regatta feel with off course start finish lines, gates and offsets at the weather mark all set on windward / leeward courses. The team would be able to quickly shorten course legs to provide an initial long weather leg and still keep the race times reasonable.

Saturday morning started out looking like another flat high pressure day with light winds filling in from the Northeast predicted. The first half hour was spent drifting in postponement. The Northeast winds finally came and abruptly went left after the start of the race and oscillated that resulted in a reach reach course at times mixed with some spinnaker work.  Three more races under bright sunny skies followed but not until after the course was moved and reset. the last race started about the drop dead time and got everyone in and boats put away in time for a relaxed cookout. Both regatta and  season awards were given out ay the picnic.
