RYC Totally Dinghy – Totally Dude!

Richmond YC was busy this weekend with 140 boats racing their Totally Dinghy Regatta. With a record turn-out, sailors found themselves dealing with "gusts of four knots" on Saturday – seems like the winter doldrums set in early. According to race chair Gail Yando, racers saw winds up to 15 knots through the weekend.

Sixteen classes and 140 sailors raced RYC’s Totally Dinghy Regatta this past weekend. Saturday’s storm brought little wind but on Sunday it picked-up to 15 knots.
