Gulfstream Regatta 2019

The Gulf Stream Regatta 2019 had 11 entrants with 4 boats from HISC.  The weather was blowing East 15-20kts, with 4-6 ft seas.  It took 2 of our HISC boats two hours to make it to Ft. Lauderdale for the start.  There were 2 races that were run for the Regatta and the Race Committee was in a power boat, assisted by a mark boat setting the marks for the races.  That was a challenge due to the state of the seas.  There was a delay of race while the mark boat set all the marks.  In the meantime, about 3 boats coming out of Ft. Lauderdale Inlet from GSC, dropped out of the race.
